The Pre-hospital Registered Nurse Program provides supplemental education to licensed RNs to practice within an EMS System as emergency medical services personnel for pre-hospital and inter-hospital transports in accordance with the guidelines set forth in Section 515.730 of the Illinois EMS Act.
The PHRN is a healthcare professional who demonstrates an understanding of pre-hospital emergency medical services. PHRN candidates completing this curriculum will have successfully demonstrated entry-level competency in basic and advanced life support theory, inclusive of scene safety issues, field patient assessment, field patient management with continuous field monitoring, radio communication skills, basic and advanced life support psychomotor skills and field transportation issues.
PHRNs function under medical control authorization in a pre-hospital environment, working in conjunction with other pre-hospital practitioners to competently and emergently care for the patient.
The PHRN Curriculum is designed to address topics pertinent to the pre-hospital emergency care of the critically ill and injured patient and reflects the current objectives of the National Standard Curriculum as identified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Association. The practice of a PHRN requires a unique body of knowledge, incorporating nursing knowledge with pre-hospital emergency medical care.
