Respiratory Therapists provide the hands-on care that helps people recover from a wide range of medical conditions. Therapists get to know their patients, and their patients' families, and have the opportunity to help them through trying times. Whenever breathing is an issue, they are there. For example, from a chronic respiratory disease, such as asthma or emphysema. Their patients range from premature infants with undeveloped lungs to elderly patients who have diseased lungs. They also provide emergency care to patients suffering from heart attacks, drowning, or shock.

The program is taught on evening and week-ends designed for students to maintain employment while continuing their education.

As a graduate of this program, you will be prepared to successfully pass the certified Respiratory Therapist multiple-choice examination administered by NBRC (National Board for Respiratory Care). You will be of immediate value and in high demand to specialty clinics, urgent care facilities, hospitals and multi-specialty health maintenance facilities.

For academic year 2017-2018 there will be Monthly Presentation Sessions on Allied Health and Health Professions programs. For quick review of program view the program's One Sheet.
