Respiratory Care Junior Option Selection & Progress
The purpose of the Junior Option track is to provide the opportunity to achieve credentialing status prior to acquisition of the degree. This curriculum is rigorously structured.
This admission option provides the student earlier eligibility for NBRC credentialing exams and earlier professional employment. It DOES NOT accelerate completion time for the BHS degree. The sequence of classes is rearranged to place many of the liberal arts courses in the senior year which otherwise would be taken in the sophomore year. The course re-sequencing in this option places the required courses for professional preparation into the freshman year with the professional courses offered in the sophomore and junior years. Successful completion of courses makes the student eligible to sit for the NBRC exams after the spring trimester of the junior year. To comply with the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care requirements, the candidate must complete all requirements that would be expected of an individual applying for the credential with an associate's degree in respiratory care.
