Are you nurturing and do you pay attention to detail? Do you enjoy working with children and adults, providing them with reassurance, hope, and encouragement when life can get a little scary? Respiratory Therapists help people take their next breath. If you have patience and a nurturing manner, and enjoy working with people, then work as a respiratory therapist could be a career option for you. Danville Community College has partnered with Reynolds Community College to bring its Respiratory Therapy Program to citizens of our service region. Students take general education courses at DCC and then apply for admission to Reynolds Community College. Students have assigned clinicals at area health care institutions and take didactic portions of most classes on-line.
NOTE: Students who have a felony conviction, or a conviction for assault, will not be allowed into clinical facilities in allied health programs. They are thus advised to choose a non-allied health field.
