Respiratory Therapy Associate in Science

Refer to Admission: Respiratory Therapy (RESP) Program in Admission Information for special admission procedures and criteria.

Respiratory Therapists, also known as Respiratory Care Practitioners are allied health professionals trained and educated to care for patients in need of cardio-pulmonary support. Respiratory therapist assess, use diagnostic tests to evaluate, treat, educate, and provide care to patients from birth until the end-of-life. A respiratory therapist has probably provided you with care if you have or have ever had asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, suffered trauma, delivered a baby prematurely or by cesarean section, suffered a respiratory or cardiac arrest, or needed life support.

Specific testing techniques are employed in respiratory therapy to assist in diagnoses, monitoring, treatment and research. This includes measurement of ventilatory volumes, pressures and flows and blood gas analyses.

For all information on admission criteria, see the Respiratory Therapy Program website at

Grossmont College prepares the student for an Associate Degree in Science in Respiratory Therapy. In addition to the respiratory therapy courses, the major requires selected general education courses to be successfully completed for the degree. Upon completion of all degree requirements, the graduate is eligible to apply for the licensing exam administered by the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC). All states, excluding Alaska require licensure to practice as an RT.

The Associate Degree in Respiratory Therapy Program is accredited through the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) located at 264 Precision Blvd., Telford, TN 37690.

Graduates of the RT program are also eligible to transfer into a BSRT program upon completion of the program. Appropriate courses are fully accepted on transfer by the University of California, the California State University and by private four-year colleges and universities.

Important: Any prior conviction of a misdemeanor or felony may influence eligibility for licensure as a Respiratory Therapist. A flagged background check or drug screen may also prohibit participation in the RT program and securing employment. Applicants with prior convictions are urged to contact the Respiratory Care Board of California (RCB) at 866-375-0386.
