Our free NREMT Review session earlier this month had almost 1,000 people attend! The audience had lots of great questions about the NREMT, about clinical care and about the practice scenarios that Dan presented.

This is what we mean when we say the NREMT exam is not like the average class exam. Students can use this example to practice for the NREMT. Educators can use it to learn how to write test questions that are more like the National Registry’s and more challenging to students.

A 45 year old female has left-sided weakness that started 20 minutes ago. She has difficulty finding the right words to answer your questions. Her vital signs are P 86, R 14, BP 142/74, and SpO2 is 96% on room air. You should next…
Here’s a practice question for the NREMT. While the question itself isn’t particularly difficult, it’s a good opportunity to look at the process for analyzing and answering Registry questions.
