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.
This is a degree completion program. Students must have earned an associate degree in respiratory care, hold your RRT from the National Board of Respiratory Care (NBRC), and currently licensed to practice to be eligible for admission.
Work on your classes when and where it works for you. The flexibility and convenience of online classes can be a game changer. Plus, Ferris online programs aren't just traditional classes with an internet spin. They're web-native, built specifically for the online learning environment.
