About Our Program

The Collin College Respiratory Care Program prepares individuals for an allied health specialty in the clinical care and management of cardiopulmonary disorders.  Respiratory therapists work with patients of all ages and can be employed in various healthcare settings.  This advanced-level program allows graduates to be eligible for the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) Registered Respiratory Therapist exam upon graduation.   Graduates receive and Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree upon completion of the program. 

Because the number of applicants typically exceeds space in the program, this program uses a competitive, criterion-based admission scoring system.

  • excellent classrooms and labs
  • state-of-the-art equipment, including ventilators
