What s different l.jpg
What’s Different?

  • All programs are now required to prepare students at a competency level consistent with the national credentialing examination for registered respiratory therapists.

  • This level of preparation better equips graduates to enter practice with the requisite knowledge and professional competencies needed to work effectively in partnership with other healthcare providers.

What’s Different?

  • Greater emphasis on the desired foundation and practice, the manner in which programs must assess student achievement of competencies, and the importance of the development of the student as a health care professional.

  • Allows programs to remain creative and innovative in program design and the methods used to enable students to achieve program goals and acquire the competencies needed for entry into practice.
