Preparing New EMS Providers | Beyond The Textbook

!cid_1A4117EE-C2FC-40DA-8ED5-4309CD462105As an EMS professional you have sat in class, studied the content, taken the exams and have even continued your education in CEU’s. But with all this book learnin’ how can you translate the textbook into the field?
