Bradley Boehringer, MSN, RN, CFRN, CEN, EMT-P

Background

Professor Bradley Boehringer has served as an emergency nurse at The Ottawa Hospital, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Memorial Hospital, and the Maine Medical Center. He has also worked as a Critical Care Transport Nurse with the LifeFlight of Maine and as a paramedic with the Renfrew County Paramedic Service.

Professor Boehringer developed a passion for prehospital and wilderness medicine while at university studying for his first degree in Environmental Engineering at Penn State University. This interest led him to work with Outward Bound and the wilderness medicine school, SOLO, in New Hampshire. Professor Boehringer's involvement with wilderness medicine eventually led him back to school to study as a nurse, beginning his career in emergency and transport medicine. He started work in a small community access hospital in NH and then moved to Boston, Maine, and eventually north of the border to the Canadian capital of Ottawa, where he works as a nurse in the capital's trauma/stroke and cardiac center. Professor Boehringer is still tied to his prehospital roots, though he has shifted from critical care transport in Maine to a county ambulance service just west of Ottawa. He also maintains an active role in Community Paramedicine. Professor Boehringer says, "We are trying to find creative ways to keep patients at home longer, especially during the pandemic!"
