It was an accelerated program, where there was 3 years shoved into 2 years. There were 2 tests each week and hands on lab examples where we learned our patient assessments, treatments, care, mechanical ventilators and certifications on BLS, PALS, NRP, ACLS. There were several clinical rotations in different hospitals and long term health care facilities where we faced real life experiences and were able to grow our strengths to take care of patients. We were taught many many diseases for babies and adults. So, so much we were taught, challenged, and put to the test to make us that much of a great respiratory therapist.
