Platt College’s Respiratory Therapy program prepares graduates to pursue careers in Respiratory Therapy, a dynamic specialty area in the rapidly-expanding health care field.
Respiratory Therapists (RTs) typically work in health care settings such as clinics and hospitals. Daily job activities might include:
- Assisting physicians in diagnosing, treating, and managing patients with cardio-pulmonary deficiencies and abnormalities
- Measuring critical lung functions
- Monitoring heart functions
- Treating newborns, trauma victims, drowning victims, and patients suffering from asthma, bronchitis, coronary heart disease, emphysema, and pneumonia.
GRADUATION FROM THE PROGRAM DOES NOT GUARANTEE ENTRY INTO ANY CAREER. ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS MAY APPLY DEPENDING ON AN INDIVIDUAL’S PREVIOUS EDUCATION AND WORK EXPERIENCE.
Respiratory Care Associate’s degree programs are available at Platt’s Alhambra and Ontario campuses, and are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Respiratory Care (CoARC).
Upon successful completion of foundational coursework and a clinical externship, graduates of the program are awarded an Associate of Science degree in Respiratory Therapy and are eligible to take entry level (CRT) and if qualified then advanced level (RRT) credentialing exams through the National Board for Respiratory Care.
