Respiratory Care A.A.S.

Clinical Experience

Patient contact and hospital exposure begin in the summer session and continue through the second year of study. Clinical experience applies theory to the patient situation. Hospital-based teaching and evaluation is done in small groups to promote one-on-one instruction and to ensure patient safety.

Clinical instruction is held in eight area health care institutions and six area home care companies, so that students are exposed to all aspects of respiratory care. Transportation is necessary for the clinical phase of study, but car-pooling and ride-sharing are often available to students without cars.
