American Association of Respiratory Care (AARC) and the health care community at
large are asking for respiratory therapists to be prepared at the baccalaureate
level due to the increasing complexity of healthcare, higher acuity patients,
shorter hospital stays, and federal regulation changes. This program in
respiratory therapy is the first to be offered in the State of Wisconsin and
was built with the needs of the working respiratory therapist in mind. Courses
are offered 100% online, allowing students the scheduling flexibility to
continue to maintain a full-time work schedule.
This pre-licensure program is a four-year degree program with classes offered in a traditional semester daytime format. Our program builds upon
a foundation of knowledge in science and the humanities, and is aimed at

promotion, maintenance and restoration across the life span in a variety of
structured client settings. BSN graduates are prepared
as general clinical practitioners, and are eligible to take the National Council
Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for Registered Nurses and obtain licensure as a
Registered Nurse in the United States.

Upon completion of the foundational coursework, students move into courses designed for their selected concentration.Graduates will be able to practice and make contributions in a variety of educational and leadership positions based on theoretical, empirical and practical knowledge gained through this program.
