Hartnell College Respiratory Care Practitioner Program is currently seeking CoARC accreditation. However, Hartnell College can provide no assurance that accreditation will be granted by CoARC.
Respiratory Care Practitioners (RCP) can work in a variety of healthcare settings. Most common settings include; critical care, acute care, and emergency care. RCPs can also work in home care, rehab facilities, and sales. It is a challenging career with many opportunities. The Department of Nursing and Allied Health is very pleased to announce plans to begin a Respiratory Care Practitioner Program, an Associate of Science degree program which prepares students to practice as Respiratory Care Practitioners. The Hartnell College RCP program will fulfill the requirements for the Associate of Science Degree in Respiratory Therapy and qualify graduates to take the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC) Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) examination.
