Accelerated Respiratory Therapy

Respiratory therapists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat persons of all ages having lung and heart disorders. Respiratory therapists perform lifesaving and life-extending responsibilities, including pulmonary function assessment, administering oxygen and aerosolized drugs, breathing retraining and pulmonary rehabilitiation, acute care management of patients requiring ventilatory support, and emergency care.

Our accelerated, second-degree program is for students already holding a bachelor’s degree. If you hold a degree in another field, our accelerated program can help you start an exciting career in respiratory therapy in a hospital, rehabilitation or home healthcare setting in as little as three semesters.
