Online PR News – 08-July-2010 – – Salt Lake City, UT – In a bid to help aspiring respiratory therapists build hands on expertise, Independence University has announced a respiratory care program with a strong focus on clinical work.
The Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care program is designed for respiratory care practitioners looking to advance their careers. The program curriculum includes courses in advanced respiratory care specialties, management, and other non-clinical aspects of the healthcare industry.
Independence University provides graduates an opportunity to work in some of the best clinics and hospitals under the supervision of senior respiratory care practitioners and physicians to complete their clinical training.
This is made possible by the educational relationship that the University shares with over 500 hospitals and healthcare centers throughout the U.S. Independence University’s educational partners provide healthcare students the clinical instruction and externships that are a vital part of such a program.
By providing sound clinical training, in-depth theoretical knowledge, and management skills, the program prepares graduates for positions with higher levels of responsibility. The program especially benefits individuals who desire advancement to clinical manager roles.
Armed with this degree, graduates can find lucrative employment opportunities in the respiratory care, anesthesiology, or pulmonary medicine departments of hospitals.

The program, which is offered online, adheres to accreditation standards. Interested individuals can continue to work and earn even as they pursue higher education to rise up the hierarchical ranks.
The Department of Labor has projected a faster than average growth in the employment of respiratory therapists owing to the higher percentage of older population susceptible to cardiopulmonary disease. Those with a Bachelor’s degree and hands on experience in providing respiratory care are likely to enjoy excellent job prospects.
For those who are looking to get a strong foothold in this proven lucrative field, Independence University’s respiratory care program should set you off on the road to success.
