The article also cites this career’s exceptionally low 0.3% unemployment rate.
For those unfamiliar with the work of Respiratory Therapists, the Forum provides an overview of the profession, including the responsibilities of the practitioners, their certification and license requirements, and board exam. In light of the pandemic, more people have learned that respiratory therapy involves the treatment of breathing and a patient’s cardiopulmonary system. As noted on the program page, respiratory therapists work in hospitals or other acute care settings or are employed in clinics, physicians’ offices or skilled nursing facilities. The Class of 2020 achieved a 100% placement rate with all graduates who responded to the outcomes survey reporting that they were seeking advanced degrees or working within six months of graduation.
