VC’s Respiratory Care Program offers a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree. Successful completion of this program will enable graduates to take a series of national board exams to become a Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT).
As a respiratory therapist you will work under the direction of a physician to evaluate, treat, and care for patients with breathing disorders.
VC's Respiratory Care Program has been recognized by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) to receive the Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success Award. This award is presented as part of the CoARC's continued efforts to value the RRT credential as a standard of professional achievement.
