Imagine: it could be 7:30 a.m. and you’ve already brought a newborn back to life. But first you would need to study respiratory care, where jobs are growing faster than the national average and median annual income was $47,420 in 2006. The Respiratory Care Program prepares you to take an active role in the maintenance and/or restoration of cardiopulmonary homeostasis. The curriculum includes intensive course work in the supporting sciences and general education areas. Classroom instruction is supplemented with learning experiences in the campus laboratory and in area hospitals.
