John Hollingsworth, B.S, NRP
Welcome to the Emergency Medical Services Program.. My name is John Hollingsworth and I am the program director . I have worked in EMS for fif teen years.. As an EMT , I always strived to improve my knowledge and understand what the higher level practitioners w ere talking about.. Upon receiving my paramedic license , I worked my way into the faster paced environments and experienced the full force of intervention based medicine.. Afterward , I moved into administrative roles at several EMS services.. Later in my care er , I earned a bachelor’s d egree in Emergency Medical S ervices from the University of South Alabama.. My passions for patient care and professionalism lead most people to think I am overbearing,, but I like to think of it as over - caring.. In my opinion,, the future of EMS lies in the public’s interpretation of our appearance,, our mannerisms,, and our ability t o bring order to chaos.. In that spirit,, I will challenge you,, push you towards excellence,, and create within you a fire that burns as mine.. Get ready and let’s start learning..
