Substantial Mod: Respiratory Care Program Description
The proposed program at Washington Adventist University is designed to admit graduates of entry-to-practice associate degree programs, who have demonstrated competency by earning the Registered Respiratory Therapist credential from the National Board for Respiratory Care into a curriculum that develops them into managers, educators, researchers, and leaders for the profession.  Completion of this post-professional degree advancement program will enhance the professional knowledge, skills, and attributes of RRTs beyond the current training level and prepare them for practice as advanced degree respiratory therapists.
