Respiratory Therapist to RN Student

Transition Your Respiratory Therapist Experience to the Role of RN

Summer Entry (Bryant Center at Tradition)

The Respiratory Therapist-to-RN Hybrid option is designed to assist qualified Registered Respiratory Therapists (RRTs) with the transition to RN practice via an evening/weekend hybrid (face to face and distance) learning environment.

After successfully completing the summer transition courses, NUR 1115 and NUR 1116, the RRT student accepted into the evening/weekend hybrid option is awarded nine (9) semester hours of credit for previous Respiratory Therapy education. Thereafter, the student will by-pass the first year courses required of ADN graduates and enter semester 3 (evening/weekend) of the ADN program. Beginning with NUR 1115 and NUR 1116, and thru the terminal ADN courses, NUR 2434 and NUR 2422, course and clinical works will include the EMS/Paramedic-to-RN students and the LPN-to-RN (evening/weekend) students. Credit for these courses plus the 9 credit hours for previous education equal the required sixty-six (66) semester hours to be awarded an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
