I was looking at the website for the requirements, I'm not sure I understand what it says, basically there are 3 routes to attaining your AS degree in RT. I have already taken a few prereqs for my generals. Are the prereqs what I think they say which is just (English, anatomy 30, psychology 5, English 1a, and CIS-13?) And do I need to take the RESP170, 172 AND 174 on my own? Which track would I fall under and also, if anyone has taken it here, any input you can add ? THanks!

Those prereqs sound about right.

I believe that the Resp. 170 is also a prereq.

The 172 and 174 are part of the Respiratory program. These are the pre-clinical classes and once completed you will then move on to the clinical phase which is going to the hospitals and completing your clinical hours required to obtain a certificate upon graduation. Once you have your certificate you are then qualified to take the NBRC exam for your license.

You can do it!

The classes just move along like a bus ride, so if you don't get off you'll arrive at your destination.

I completed it a few years ago.

Take care.
