Seminole State Respiratory Care students excel

 

The latest graduating class in the Respiratory Care Program at Seminole State achieved great success. Out of the 31 students enrolled, 29 tested and 26 of them received the highest credential, Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT), a 21.7 percent increase over last year’s class performance for the advanced credential. 

Two additional students are eligible for the RRT credential but have not completed all testing requirements at this time and 24 graduates are now employed as Respiratory Therapists. 

The national exam has two cut-off scores, one for the Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) credential and a higher cut-off score for the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential. 

“As program director, my focus is to provide an active learning environment and engage students as much as possible in the classroom/lab. Incorporating simulation via an online platform and using high fidelity simulation has helped tremendously in preparing our students for their success,” said Jaime Magnetico, MA, RRT-NPS, Respiratory Care Program manager at Seminole State. 

The Respiratory Care Program at Seminole State prepares graduates with demonstrated competence in the cognitive, psychomotor and affective learning domains of respiratory care practice as performed by Registered Respiratory Therapists.
