Respiratory Care

FCC Respiratory Care Program


The Respiratory Care program prepares students for general careers within the field and qualifies them to take the National Board for Respiratory Cares' entry level exams (CRT and RRT).


Respiratory Therapists care for patients who have trouble breathing—for example, from a chronic respiratory disease, such as asthma or emphysema. Their patients range from premature infants with undeveloped lungs to elderly patients who have diseased lungs. They also provide emergency care to patients suffering from heart attacks, drowning, or shock.
