Respiratory Care receives CoARC award

The St. Petersburg College (SPC) Respiratory Care program was recently notified that it is “among a select group of programs that will be recognized by the Committee on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) to receive the Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success Award.” This is the sixth consecutive year the program has received this award,  making SPC one of a small percentage of respiratory care educational programs in the nation to meet these criteria so consistently.

This award is based on the program’s record of graduate success on the discipline’s credentialing exam, student success, retention, and on-time graduation rates, and graduate and employer satisfaction with the program.

SPC offers a very well established and highly successful Respiratory Therapist (RT) program, having produced highly qualified Registered Respiratory Therapists (RRT) since 1971. The program uses the latest technology to teach students in this high-tech, high-demand field, and the on-site simulation hospital helps students feel comfortable practicing skills in a controlled setting.
