In January, 2012, Lansing Community College launched an education program specifically designed for military medics. The goal was to create a pathway for military medics to transition to paramedics. Those who complete this program are positioned to continue onward to become a nurse, if desired, by entering into the Advanced Standing Nursing Program.
Paramedics earn a median salary over $32,000, with nurses earning a median salary over $63,000. Paramedic and nursing employment is currently strong, with projected demand for the next decade.
Students in the program are eligible for GI-bill funds, Military Tuition Assistance (TA) and traditional Title IV financial aid.

LCC offers a Paramedic Certificate of Achievement (CA) and an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Emergency Medical Services. Those who continue onward to nursing will earn an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) in Nursing.
