Respiratory Care
Overview

Breath is life. There are few things scarier than the inability to breathe, even for a short time. Be part of the team that helps patients breathe easier with an associate of applied science in Respiratory Care from Collin College.

As a respiratory therapist, you will work with patients of all ages, providing treatment, monitoring responses to therapies, evaluating patients and helping them manage their breathing or cardiovascular conditions.

Collin’s Respiratory Care Program prepares individuals for an allied health specialty in the clinical care and management of respiratory disorders. The 22-month program will prepare you to apply for the Therapist Multiple Choice and Clinical Simulation Exams given by the National Board for Respiratory Care. The college also partners with Midwestern State University to offer a bachelor of science in Respiratory Care online completion program.
