Breathe Easy - Advance Your Career
Breathing is amongst the most basic human functions. It's also amongst the most urgent. After only a few minutes without breathing, the human body suffers severe damage. As a result, the respiratory therapists who help their patients draw their next breath are some of the most in-demand professionals in the healthcare industry. As the U.S. population continues to age, this demand will only increase.
Working primarily in hospital settings, respiratory therapists are responsible for an extremely wide range of patients. From the smallest infants to the elderly, from long-term disease to emergencies, respiratory therapists must be prepared for everything. Our program will give you access to expert instruction and the cutting-edge skills you need to advance your career.
