respiratory therapist at HFCC

  1. 0
    Hi Iím wondering if anyone is going into respiratory therapy at HFCC? I just got a letter to attend the orientation meeting this month, but the letter says that I am number 37 and they only accept 28 for the fall 2010 semester. They want me to attend the meeting in case they do not fill the seats and I may be accepted into the fall 2010 program.. Just wondering if anyone knows the chances of me getting in this year? This makes me so nervous and confused

    I would suggest you to google Respiratory Therapist Forum.....There are alot of new grads,some have been out for over a year and can not find employment. I was going to go respiratory myself, but have been accepted for the nursing program. Good Luck

    yes I do attend HFCC, the program is suppose to be one of the best in the nation. im hoping to get into the program this fall, im keeping my fingers crossed. if you go under HFCC website it should give you all the info you need on RTs. this is what I found that summarizes the occupation.

    Respiratory therapists are health care professionals, dedicated to providing life-supporting, life-enhancing
    care to newborns, children, adults and the elderly. Respiratory therapists work under qualified medical
    direction to assess, treat, manage, provide diagnostic evaluation, educate and care for patients with
    deficiencies and abnormalities associated with the cardiopulmonary system. Therapists work throughout
    hospitals, most often in intensive care units and emergency settings. Therapists are a special blend of
    patient-centered caregivers and technically sharp, analytical thinkers. Some therapists concentrate on
    pulmonary rehabilitation and continuing care in patient homes or extended care facilities while others
    specialize in pediatric/neonatal care. The respiratory therapist may also work in areas such as
    cardiopulmonary diagnostics, medical equipment sales, management and education.
