Associate of Applied Science (AAS)
Respiratory therapists work to evaluate, treat, and care for patients with breathing disorders. They are a vital part of a hospital’s lifesaving response team that answers patient emergencies. While most respiratory therapists work in hospitals, an increasing number have branched out into alternative care sites, such as nursing homes, physicians’ offices, home health agencies, specialized care hospitals, medical equipment supply companies, and patients’ homes.
Upon completion of the AAS degree in respiratory care, graduates will be prepared to begin a career as an Advanced Practitioner respiratory therapist.
