This program provides the basic skills for an individual to be a competent professional practitioner of respiratory care. Completion of this program qualifies students to take examinations by the National Board for Respiratory Care.

A grade of C or higher is required for satisfactory completion of all. To continue in the program, students may repeat a RSPT course only one time and may repeat no more than two RSPT courses while enrolled in the program. The term “repeat” shall be interpreted to mean re-enrollment following withdrawal, drop, or unsatisfactory grade. Each student will be required to pass a comprehensive exit examination prior to graduation.

Students seeking entry into Respiratory Care must file a specific program application form and complete additional admission procedures as required. Information is available on the Respiratory Care website.
