From press reports
Cathy Stevenson, an ER Tech with Winston Medical Center, was
recently recognized by the Board of Directors of the National
Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for achieving 30
consecutive years as a Nationally Registered EMT. This distinction
is an honor held by few EMT’s.
To maintain her status as a Nationally Registered EMT, Stevenson
completed, on a biennial basis, the most comprehensive
recertification program for Emergency Medical Technicians in
American. She not only completed courses to refresh her fundamental
knowledge and skills but also attended a minimum of two hours per
month on additional continuing education courses to advance her
knowledge on new lifesaving skills.
By maintaining her Nationally Registered status and completing
regular continuing education courses, Stevenson, is among the few
elite EMT’s with the most training in pre-hospital emergency medical
care in the nation.
Stevenson was Nationally Registered as an EMT-Basic in 1981 and has
been serving the Winston County Community since 1981.
The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians serves as the
national EMS certification organization by providing a valid, uniform
process to assess the knowledge and skills required for competent
practice by EMS professionals throughout their careers and by
maintaining a registry of certification status.
