Associate of Science in Respiratory Care
Most of us take breathing for granted. But patients with asthma, bronchitis or other breathing conditions know its importance - along with the respiratory therapists who care for them.
At St. Luke's College, you will learn to evaluate, treat and care for patients with breathing disorders. Respiratory therapists evaluate and treat all types of patients, from the tiniest of patients in the critical care nursery whose lungs are not fully developed to elderly patients whose lungs are diseased.
Graduates are eligible to take the national examination which is required for state licensure to become credentialed as Certified Respiratory Therapists (CRT) and Registered Respiratory Therapists (RRT).
