Respiratory Care Students Have 100 Percent Pass Rate on National Certification for Six Years in a Row

The Respiratory Care Program at Volunteer State Community College is celebrating the completion of another fantastic year! Every one of Vol State’s Respiratory Care graduates successfully completed and passed their national certification exam on the very first attempt. It’s the sixth year in a row that Respiratory Care program graduates have experienced a 100 percent board passage rate on the first attempt. This board examination is necessary for graduates to obtain their national credentials in order to become licensed and employed as Respiratory Therapists in the state of Tennessee.

The Respiratory Care degree program consists of a general education core and four semesters of major core courses that combine class, laboratory and clinical experiences for the students. Members of this Respiratory Care program will walk in the May 2013 graduation ceremony.

Front row: Suzanne Jackson and Ter’rez Crabtree;

Second row: Kim Christmon, Clinical Director, LaDona Hoyt, Traci Heckerman, Kristel Pruitt, Micah Pausina, Jamie Dorris, Tazlyn Saez, Kristyn Ellison, John McNab, Chris Martin;

Third row: Cory Martin, Program Director, Edwin Aymara, Josh Mullinax, Jonathon Rich and Chase Shehane.
