FCC Respiratory Care Program


The FCC Respiratory Care Program has an outstanding regional reputation for producing excellent graduates. This program prepares students for general careers within the field, and qualifies them to take the National Board for Respiratory Care’s entry level and advanced practitioner exams.


Respiratory Therapists care for patients who have trouble breathing—for example, from a chronic respiratory disease, such as asthma or emphysema. Their patients range from premature infants with undeveloped lungs to elderly patients who have diseased lungs. They also provide emergency care to patients suffering from heart attacks, drowning, or shock.
