Crafton Hills Respiratory Care Program Receives CoARC Award

By on June 30, 2020

The Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC) recognized the Respiratory Care program at Crafton Hills College as a Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success award winner.

This award is presented to programs to recognize effectiveness in inspiring its graduates to achieve their highest educational and professional aspirations. The respiratory therapist (RRT) credential is a measure of professional achievement, and Crafton Hills was recognized for having documented credentialing success rate of 90% or above.

“We have an awesome team and an incredible mix of varied backgrounds that lead to student success,” said Daniel Rojan, faculty co-chair for Allied Health Services and assistant professor of Respiratory Care. “I truly am appreciative to be able to work with such a valuable group of faculty with such an incredible wealth of varied experience. Another huge factor, as evidenced by our re-accreditation is the support of our amazing medical director, Dr. Sehuelt – he plays a huge role in helping us to continuously push the bar for our program. And we couldn’t do this without our adjuncts and professional experts.”

RRTs often treat people who have asthma, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, sleep apnea and more. Thousands of people suffer difficult breathing problems and rely heavily on skilled RRTs for treatment.

Crafton Hills offers an associate of science degree in Respiratory Care, which can lead to a career as a registered RRT at a hospital, clinic, doctor’s office or nursing home, or an expert and salesman of respiratory equipment.
