Best Respiratory Care Therapy/Therapist colleges in Tampa 2021

A degree in respiratory care is an option for those interested in working in healthcare without going into the traditional fields of medicine or nursing. A respiratory care therapist works with healthcare staff to support patients in need of support with breathing or who are incapable of breathing on their own. To earn a degree in respiratory care, there are both associate and bachelor’s degree options available, though most are offered through allied health universities rather than at liberal arts and research universities. Students will learn how to properly care for patients with breathing disorders and develop skills in patient assessment, cardiopulmonary disease, and general pharmacology. With a bachelor’s degree, patients will learn more advanced skills in areas such as disaster preparedness and research techniques.
