Respiratory Therapy Program




Welcome to the Respiratory Therapy Department at Labette Community College

Labette Community College established its Respiratory Therapy Program in 1984. Since that date, over 300 students have graduated from the program.

The Respiratory Therapy Program's goal is to provide competent respiratory Therapy practitioners. Through guided study in the classroom and clinical settings, the graduates of the Respiratory Therapy Program are prepared to:

  • Take the national credentialing exams administered by the National Board of Respiratory Care (NBRC). Graduates are eligible to take the advanced Level Registry Examinations upon passing the Certification Examination.

  • Function as advanced level respiratory therapists performing both routine patient care and critical care procedures in the hospital, clinic, laboratory and home setting.

  • Matriculate into a college or university to earn a higher degree.

Scholarship Information for Respiratory Therapy Students:

Labette Community College Respiratory Therapy Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care and has a current probationary accreditation status.
