Effective last week, I'm now a Nationally Registered Paramedic. That means that I'm no longer "NREMT-P", instead I'm "NR-P".
And if I decide to pay money for a new patch, it will look like this (From NREMT website):
I'm glad that NREMT has gone back to the traditional old rocker patch for paramedics. It's a nice nod to tradition. As for NR-P? Doesn't matter much to me right now. I know my home state, Pennsylvania, will be transitioning to the new standards soon, and it's unclear what transition I'll need to do at the state level. With the NREMT, I challenged the exam for recert, so I automatically transitioned.
