Respiratory Care

  • Respiratory care is a discipline that uses scientific principles to carry out physician directed diagnosis and treatment of abnormal respiratory conditions. Respiratory care practitioners work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, medical clinics, skilled nursing facilities, home care, research, education and medical equipment sales.

    The program combines basic science and modern respiratory care theory with clinical experience in local medical centers. Both campus and clinical learning focus on all areas of respiratory care, which includes adult, neonatal and pediatric, general and intensive care.

    The Respiratory Care program prepares the student for both local and national standards. Graduates are eligible to take the national entry level examination and the national advanced practitioner level examinations administered by the National Board for Respiratory Care.
