A CLINICAL Career in Demand
The Respiratory Care Practitioner is often thought of as a critical care specialist – and they are! In critical care areas, three professions are present 24/7: the nurse, the respiratory therapist, and the physician working together with other disciplines to provide whole person care. The respiratory care practitioner serves in inpatient and outpatient clinics with all age groups from labor and delivery, to birth through adulthood. Your clinical career starts with an orientation to patient care in the first quarter and by the second quarter onwards you will be in hospital training.
