Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care
The Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care, offered by the Department of Health Sciences in collaboration with Guthrie, will replace the existing Associate of Applied Science in Respiratory Therapy. As part of the transition process, both the associate-level program and the baccalaureate-level program will accept new students for Fall 2019 enrollment; after Fall 2019, however, the associate program will be phased out and replaced by the bachelor’s program. The transition to a baccalaureate-level program is necessary due to the changing standards and expectations of the American Association of Respiratory Care and the Commission for Accreditation of Respiratory Care. Both of these organizations now expect respiratory care programs to offer the bachelor’s credential.
