By: Judson Smith, MHA, Paramedic
As a healthcare provider, it is important to not only know clinical medicine and be recognized as part of the healthcare delivery system, but also understanding the regulatory rules that govern our profession are just as important to our success as a clinical provider and recognition as a more relevant part of the delivery system. Physicians, Nurses, even Massage Therapist in the State of Texas, are required to take a proficiency review and exam to ensure they know their regulatory requirements that govern their profession in the State of Texas.
So, why is the great State of Texas requiring this test? It is pretty simple. They want you to know the rules of your profession.
As of September 1, 2017, all certified EMS providers at all levels will need to complete an approved jurisprudence review and exam course along with your regular continuing education requirements and be able to show successful completion of that review prior to re-certifying in the state of Texas.
One big difference between this exam compared to other professions in Texas is that The Texas Department of State Health Services offers a different and more unique approach to this review/exam. As long as the continuing education provider is accredited in the State, the State of Texas will allow the exam to be offered.
