Application deadline for Respiratory Care program extended

The application deadline for St. Johns River State College’s Respiratory Care program has been extended to October 15.  Classes will begin in January and are based on the St. Augustine campus with selected clinical courses scheduled in health care facilities within the regional area. 

Accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care, SJR State’s Respiratory Care program provides students with the knowledge, attitude and skills required to help meet the demands for respiratory therapists in the health care industry. Students will be trained in the skills needed to work in areas such as pediatric care, nursing homes and in hospitals. Asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, lung cancer and pneumonia are some of the conditions that require the care of a respiratory therapist.

Upon successful completion of the degree requirements, students will be eligible to apply to take the national certification exam for Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) and Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential, which is administered by the National Board of Respiratory Care.   

Admission requirements and prerequisites apply.  Visit the website for more information at or call (904) 808-7465.
