Pride Bite: NSU has Florida’s Only B.S. in Respiratory Therapy Program

shark pride logoNova Southeastern University’s Bachelor of Science degree program in Respiratory Therapy – the first such program offering in the state – has been granted provisional accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Therapy (CoARC).

The American Association of Respiratory Care has declared the bachelor’s degree one of the priorities for a 2015 initiative to broaden expertise in the profession. Students who graduate under CoARC accreditation are recognized by the National Board for Respiratory Care and are eligible to sit for the appropriate credentialing examinations.

Graduates from NSU’s Respiratory Therapy Program will have opportunities in the areas of advanced respiratory clinical practice, education, medical and health services management, and medical equipment sales and service.

Respiratory therapy students will receive classroom and simulated clinical training on the third floor of the NSU Palm Beach 75,000-sq.-ft. campus building at 11501 N. Military Trail, which has been transformed into a simulated 10-bed intensive care unit, a four-room patient simulation suite and computer labs, all to facilitate the new program.
