Program Justification


Description
The respiratory care associate degree is a sequence of courses that prepares students for careers in the field of respiratory care. Learning opportunities develop academic and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. The program emphasizes specialized training in areas such as pulmonary and cardiac pharmacology, medical gases, humidity/aerosol therapy, positive pressure ventilation, incentive spirometry, patient assessment, postural drainage, percussion/vibration, assessment of diseases and conditions, critical respiratory care, advanced critical care monitoring, pulmonary function testing, and pediatric and neonatal respiratory care. Program graduates receive a respiratory care associate degree, qualifying them to take the examinations to become a Registered Respiratory Therapist. Students may become certified by taking the Entry Level Certification Examination administered by the National Board for Respiratory Care. Upon successfully completing the Certification (CRT) Exam, the graduate is eligible to take both parts of the Registry (RRT) Exams. To work in Georgia, all respiratory care practitioners must apply and be granted a license. The only way to obtain a license is to pass at least the Entry Level Certification Exam.

Occupational Trends
Job opportunities are expected to be very good, especially for those with a degree and certification and those with cardiopulmonary care skills or experience working with infants. The vast majority of job openings will continue to be in hospitals. However, a growing number of job openings are expected to be outside of hospitals, especially within in-home healthcare services, offices of physicians or other health practitioners, consumer-goods rental firms, or in the employment services industry as temporary workers in various settings.

Education Programs
An associate degree is required to become a respiratory therapist. Colleges and universities, medical schools, vocational-technical institutes, and the Armed Forces offer training at the postsecondary level. Most programs award associate or bachelor's degrees and prepare graduates for jobs as advanced respiratory therapists. A license is required to practice as a respiratory therapist, except in Alaska and Hawaii. Also, most employers require respiratory therapists to maintain a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) certification. Licensure is usually based, in large part, on meeting the requirements for certification from the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC). The board offers the Certified Respiratory Therapists (CRT) credential to those who graduate from entry-level or advanced programs accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) and who also pass an exam. The board also awards the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) to CRTs who have graduated from advanced programs and passed two separate examinations. Supervisory positions and intensive-care specialties usually require the RRT.

Job/Career Description
Respiratory Therapists evaluate, treat, and care for patients with breathing or other cardiopulmonary disorders. Practicing under the direction of a physician, respiratory therapists assume primary responsibility for all respiratory care treatments and diagnostic procedures. They consult physicians and other healthcare staff to help develop and modify patient care plans. Therapists also provide complex therapy requiring considerable independent judgment, such as caring for patients on life support in intensive-care units of hospitals. Respiratory Therapists evaluate and treat all types of patients, ranging from premature infants whose lungs are not fully developed to elderly people whose lungs are diseased. They provide temporary relief to patients with chronic asthma or emphysema and give emergency care to patients who are victims of a heart attack, stroke, drowning, or shock.
