Respiratory Therapy Students & Graduates


A.A.S., Respiratory Care

Graduates of the A.A.S., Respiratory Therapy program at Labette Community College are eligible to take the National Board for Respiratory Care Therapist Multiple Choice Exams. Kansas allows new graduates to obtain a limited licensure while sitting for board exams. Some states require a Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) credential to apply for a state licensure and a few states require the higher level of credentialing (Registered Respiratory Therapist or RRT). LCC Respiratory Therapy graduates are prepared for both the entry level, CRT and the advanced level, RRT exams. Program applicants who are located outside of Kansas should consult with the state licensing agency in the state where they are located to determine state licensure requirements. State licensing contacts are available at https://www.aarc.org/advocacy/state-society-resources/state-licensure-contact.
