Another 100 Percent Pass Rate for Respiratory!

The Respiratory Care Program at Volunteer State Community College is celebrating another big accomplishment. All 19 students in the 2011 graduating class completed their board examinations this spring and passed the national certification exam on the very first attempt. It’s the fifth year in a row that Respiratory Care graduates have had a 100 percent pass rate on the first attempt. The students must pass the National Board for Respiratory Care exam to be credentialed, and they need to be credentialed to become licensed and gain employment. The national average first attempt pass rate for all respiratory care exam candidates is 57 percent. Volunteer State Allied Health programs traditionally have very high pass rates. Members of this Respiratory Care program will walk in the May 2012 graduation ceremony.
