I’d like to welcome you to our TOOC, which is a targeted open online course designed for respiratory therapy students who are currently in an associate level programs, who are thinking about getting their bachelor’s degree and pre-existing practitioners we’re looking to move into a BS completion program.
So welcome to our course “Shared Air”; and a little bit about a “TOOC” some background information that’s kind of a coin a phrase we came up with – its an adoption of a “MOOC”, but it’s really a targeted open online course because it’s really segmented toward respiratory therapist or all of the contents developed specifically for those interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree in respiratory therapy.
A lot of what’s going on in the future will definitely require a baccalaureate degree or higher level of education in respiratory therapy. Currently, roughly 80% to 85% of the educational curriculum in respiratory therapy is still associate level.
The American Association for Respiratory Care has outlined as part of their strategic vision, moving forward they would like to see 80% of the workforce be at the baccalaureate level by the year 2020. So our program here at the University of Cincinnati really falls in line with those goals were designed really for working adults trying to complete their professional component degree beyond their associate level.
In current practice and fielded history therapy we’re starting to see a huge trend, the expectations of practitioners are being increased; the actual work force is creating stipulations that we’ve never seen before and entry level into practice is really being dictated not only by the demands of the work force, and hospitals, and hiring organizations but state licensure bodies as well.
In recent times as late as last year we we’ve actually seen two states change their entry level requirements to be a practitioner from the CRT to the RRT of course all the CRT’s that have a license are grandfathered in and still have the ability to work, but it really shows a true causal effect of what we’re doing to try to move the profession forward.
Several other states have showed interest in changing their licensing requirements to the RRT as an entry level as well. Even more in-depth, certain states have actually entertain the idea of going to a BS degree and the way that this is allowed to actually be facilitated is market conditions are right now we have a surplus of respiratory therapist. We have lots of history therapy programs putting out a multitude of students and as a result of that the market can dictate versus the practitioner what the standards have become so I think in the future we’ll see that that continue to grow that not only the entry level credential requirements will change, but in certain areas especially where there’s huge surpluses and there’s major medical centers, I think you’ll see a BS actually become the standard to be hired in.
We’ve already discussed the benefits moving forward to having a bachelor’s degree in the future for longevity, mobility, and upward advancement. What I’d like to do now is really tell you about the course – the TOOC we’ve discussed – the benefits to you as an individual. The course is set up to where you can work at your own pace it’s designed in five unique modules and it’s totally tuition free so you really can get a sampling if you’re wondering about if you wanted to go back get your degree – you’re skeptical, you’re actually able to test the waters before you fully commit.
Once you come into our program, if you choose to, you actually will get college credit for attending the course if you choose not to you then you get the benefit of the knowledge.
A little bit about our program, the Respiratory program – the BS completion in the University of Cincinnati. If you choose, once you’ve completed your TOOC to come into our program; once you complete one semester of course work, you can apply the TOOC as 3 – 5 credit hours of credit towards your degree.
Our program here is completely online 100% there’s no face-to-face requirements and you can be complete in 20 months from start to finish. We hope to see you in the course and hopefully in our program in the future. Thank you.
