Northern Michigan University offers students an Associate Degree in Applied Science in Respiratory Therapy.
One year of prerequisite courses is followed by two years of respiratory class work and clinical education. Students will then be eligible to take the national credentialing exams given by the National Board for Respiratory Care. Students may opt to continue for a fourth year, and obtain their Bachelors degree, which can be completed entirely on-line. Classes for the Respiratory Therapy Program begin each fall.
