This is a great opportunity. I would encourage anyone who received the 68W training to take advantage of the EMS degree programs. This is a quick and seamless path to a degree, which is much needed in our careers.

National American University (NAU) is excited to announce the addition of the Bachelor of Applied Science in Medical Services Management and the Associate of Applied Science in Emergency Medical Services. The two new programs were specifically designed to support the educational needs of the 68W MOS Health Care Specialists.

Known for its commitment to excellence and service to the military, NAU has designed this program exclusively for Active Army, Army Reserve, and Army National Guard members who have completed 68W training and who hold EMT certification through the National Registry. The 68W EMT certification transfers as credits toward the completion of these degrees, allowing soldiers to complete the associate degree in as little as one year.

“As a veteran, I take pride in being a part of delivering specialized educational solutions for our military. I recognize the sacrifice and the commitment that it takes to serve our country while earning a degree. Seeing a military student walk across the graduation stage is very rewarding,” said Weston Neiffer, Associate Vice President of Military Services at NAU.

To add to the excitement surrounding this opportunity, Mr. Robert Brummitt, SFC, US Army Retired, promptly became the program’s first graduate, receiving the Associate of Applied Science in Emergency Medical Services. Mr. Brummitt, AMEDD&S Training Specialist, enrolled in NAU’s A.A.S Management degree in Fall of 2014. When he realized that he could receive significant transfer credit for his 68W EMT certification, he changed his degree plan to the A.A.S. in EMS, allowing him to earn his degree this past Spring. Mr. Brummitt walked across the stage at NAU’s Austin Graduation Commencement Ceremony. In June Mr. Brummitt shared, “This is a great opportunity. I would encourage anyone who received the 68W training to take advantage of the EMS degree programs. This is a quick and seamless path to a degree, which is much needed in our careers.”

Committed to helping students balance their military service, family and education, NAU offers affordable and flexible degree options. This includes a reduced military tuition rate, multiple transfer opportunities such as CLEP, DSST, and ACE recommended credit.
