The Respiratory Therapy Program has done it again!  The School of Allied Health is proud to announce that the Respiratory Therapy graduating class of 2013 has obtained a 100 percent pass rate on their Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) examination.  The CRT is the professions' standard for entrance into the practice for Respiratory Care. This examination consists of 160 questions distributed among three major content areas: clinical data, equipment, and therapeutic procedures.

The University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College & Buckeye Hills Career Center RCP Class of 2013 included eight graduates:

Jonathan Beaver
Tanya Condit
Christopher (Chris) Coyan
Susannah (Suzi) Fetherolf
Brandon Gilbert
Christina Roach

Before taking the CRT exam, the Respiratory Therapy class of 2013 was recognized for all their hard work and completion of the program at the annual pinning ceremony.  The RCP faculty at the University of Rio Grande/Rio Grande Community College & Buckeye Hills Career Center proudly held a pinning ceremony for students on May 8, 2013.  Graduates, along with family and friends, were treated to refreshments and an evening filled with memories that are meant to last a lifetime.  During the ceremony, Tanya Condit received a check from Holzer Health Systems for highest GPA achievement.

The School of Allied Health would like to congratulate the RCP Program for all their hard work and excellent accomplishments.  We also send a big thank you to everyone who has contributed to the success of the program and students.  Congratulations to the RCP Class of 2013!  We wish you the best of luck as you continue your education and careers.
