The University of Southern Indiana offers two options to earn a bachelor of science degree in respiratory therapy.
The four-year entry level program offers a comprehensive curriculum including hands-on training and direct clinical experience. The entry level program allows new undergraduate students the ability to earn their BSRT degree in the profession of respiratory therapy.
Practicing respiratory therapists may earn a Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Therapy online without the need to relocate. The degree completion program allows those who have an Associate of Science degree in Respiratory Therapy and have been awarded the RRT credential the ability to develop their skills and advance in their field.
