Sandy Neyen
Accomplished professional with 30 plus years of medical experience, 26 years of EMS service, and with 24 years serving as a paramedic.

It is my honor to nominate Sandy Neyen as the Instructor of the year. Sandy is passionate and committed EMS educator with 26 years of experience in the classroom. I believe it takes a driven, humble and accomplished EMS provider to make an excellent EMS instructor. Sandy Neyen is a unique individual whose love of emergency medicine can be seen within each of her successful students from class to clinical to their first EMS career position. When you can see the passion of one person grow into someone else through a lecture and clinical setting, you know you have a quality instructor. Sandy also serves as the clinical Coordinator. She was instrumental in the collegeís receipt of CAAHEP accreditation for its paramedic program and has helped shape and mold the program to the success it is today. Sandy willingly pours hours of her personal time each year into the program to ensure each student is a success both at the NREMT and in their career. Sandy is a NAEMSE 2 instructor, along with teaching BLS ACLS, PALS, AMLS and PHTLS. Though she has battled rounds of illness over the past years that have landed her in the ICUís. Both locally and regionally, she continues to selflessly dedicate herself to the quality of EMS. When you hear Sandyís name--- you mean something in education. In conclusion, I would like to confirm that even without the honor of this award, the community of EMS providers that have graduated from NICC and have had the privilege of learning from Sandy Neyen are among those fortunate enough to have shared in her passion and dedication to educating compassionate and knowledgeable EMTs and Paramedics. She truly is a hero in EMS.
