Respiratory Care (Therapy) Option, Liberal Arts A.A.

 

are you looking for a job as a respiratory care therapist?

Respiratory therapists specialize in the evaluation, treatment and care of patients with breathing disorders. As a respiratory therapist, you will perform procedures crucial in maintaining the lives of seriously ill patients with breathing problems and assist in the treatment and rehabilitation of patients with heart and lung disease. You will have the option to work in hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, sleep disorders clinics, pulmonary function labs, hyperbaric chambers, skilled nursing facilities or home health agencies.

The field of respiratory care is experiencing one of the highest levels of demand for graduates over the last decade and employment opportunities are abundant both locally and nationally. This trend is expected to accelerate as the aging population increases. Gulf Coast State College is here to help you build a solid foundation that will prepare you to continue your studies at a four-year institution. We offer the necessary prerequisites for the state of Florida university baccalaureate programs.

While salaries vary based on the type and location of your job, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median annual wage for respiratory therapists was $57,790 in May 2015.
