Health Professions Associate of Applied Science degree (A.A.S.) – Respiratory Care Program

The Respiratory Care Program prepares graduates to perform competently in providing all phases of respiratory care therapies and modalities. The respiratory care curriculum is a challenging one that provides a “hands-on” approach and incorporates a variety of educational experiences and environments from the traditional classroom to the laboratory and clinical settings. The program is a competency-based education and provides a curriculum sequence in order for the students to correlate didactic, lab and clinical skills sufficiently. After graduation, students take the national certification and registry exams administered by the NBRC National Board for Respiratory Care and obtain a license to work in the desired state.
