Unlocking an invisible workforce

1978, New Orleans, Mardi Gras, is the first documented case of hospitals employing travel nurses. Fundamentally, not much has changed in the world of travel healthcare in the last four decades. Until now.

Paramedics are joining the hospital healthcare workforce as nurse adjacent members of healthcare teams nationwide. Best Practice Medicine is leading this revolution as the subject matter expert and the architects of the nation's first dedicated travel paramedic organization.

Five facts about paramedics

  1. Paramedics must graduate from an accredited two-degree college program and pass national board cognitive and psychomotor examinations to practice.
  2. Paramedics hold and maintain their own medical licensure and are board governed.
  3. Paramedics have worked in select hospitals safely and successfully for decades.
  4. Paramedics are different from EMTs, an EMT completes a hundred-hour course, much like a CNA.
  5. Paramedic scope of practice has radically expanded while public and professional perception has not, creating an invisible workforce.


The increase in the scope of practice and education of paramedics in the last two decades uniquely positions this workforce to participate as members of many care teams throughout the hospital ecosystem.

Our travel paramedics are currently working as nurse adjacent care providers on the following teams nationwide.

  • Emergency department
  • Labor and Delivery
  • Intensive Care Units
  • Cath Labs
  • Surgery
  • PACU
  • Medical-Surgical
  • Psychiatric
  • Orthopedics
  • COVID-19 treatment and isolation units
  • Pediatrics
  • Outpatient clinics

We come in peace

Paramedics working in hospitals can be a lightning rod issue. The profession is young and the expansion of scope and education since its inception in the early 1980's substantial.

Healthcare is a team sport, and paramedics are simply another position to consider adding to the roster. As respiratory therapists in the '40s, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners in the '60s, and more recently Clinical Pharmacists improved care teams without threatening the vital role of historical positions like nurses, and physicians so to do paramedics come in peace, for the benefit of patient care.


Healthcare can be complex and challenging to navigate. That's why we entered the already crowded healthcare staffing space, our team knows how to navigate the regulations, roadblocks, and resistance that previously prevented hospital access to this invisible workforce.
