Rural Nevada EMS Conference

Office of Statewide Initiatives

The Rural Nevada EMS Conference is an annual three-day conference that helps Nevada's EMS personnel better serve their rural communities. Our goal is to provide quality education to rural providers from EMR to Paramedic. Quality speakers from around the country as well as local speakers are brought in to share their knowledge. Classes are taught to meet the needs of the rural providers and provides continuing education units (CEUs) for re-certification.

The University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine invites you to join us for ZOOM into EMS. We are sorry to say the Rural Nevada EMS Conference has been cancelled for October 1-3, 2020 due to Covid-19.  

In lieu of the conference, we will be offering a total of 24 CEUs via 2-hour EMS classes on no cost. The classes are scheduled to start in September, 2020 and run through February, 2021.  Participants will receive two CEUs for each class they attend.

Please visit often for further information including dates, topics, and registration instructions.

Attendees also have the opportunity to network with fellow rural EMS personnel from across the state as well as neighboring states. While participants appreciate receiving state-approved CEUs, some of the most valuable learning comes from the sharing of expertise among fellow EMS personnel. In addition, this networking promotes comradery for many individuals who often live in isolated communities

The conference is self-funded with support from Nevada State EMS, local mines, vendors, and various sponsors. This allows for relatively low conference fees and a limited number of scholarships.
