NASHVILLE, TN — The Volunteer State Community College has recently received the Distinguished RRT Credential Success award for its respiratory care technology program. The program has successfully prepared the students for the board exam, resulting in the highest pass rates in both Registered Respiratory Therapist exam and Certified Respiratory Therapist exam.
The program aims to produce high-qualified respiratory therapists to work together with physicians and medical experts. The therapists provide excellent medical treatments for patients suffering from lung problems and diseases as asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema and, specifically, COVID-19. They will later also work with victims of heart attack, accident victims and others with breathing problems.
The succession pass rates of the respiratory care technology program highly appreciated, as they had a one hundred percent pass rate for the Registered Respiratory Therapist exam and the Certified Respiratory Therapist exam in 2020. This made an excellent accreditation level that will be supporting its graduates to pursuing a career in the medical field, specifically as respiratory therapists.
“Accreditation shows that our program is following a list of standards and procedures established by a recognized national organization,” said Health Sciences dean, Kim Christmon. “Students have a right to be taught the skills they need to be successful in their field. Not all Respiratory Care programs are accredited.”
“The integrity of the program over the years has been held to a high standard,” said program director Mallory Higginbotham. “That means students can pass their board exams on their first attempt.”
The demand for qualified Respiratory Care Therapists remains high, while graduates of the Vol State program are even taking traveling positions from city to city as contractors. The Vol State program has a 100 percent job placement rate.
