Kettering College Classes Meeting Online, Faculty & Staff Working Remotely, Due to Coronavirus

Kettering College has moved all face-to-face classes and business operations online as we take precautions to keep our students, faculty, and staff safe during the current novel coronavirus pandemic.

All student activities & events, including those on campus are canceled until further notice.

Student Services (Admissions, Financial Aid, and Records), and Academic Support (tutoring, Writing Center, career services, and advising) have also moved online. It is still their priority to serve students, answer questions, and enroll students for the upcoming semesters.

Respiratory Care

3-Year Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care

The respiratory care degree is designed to prepare students to function with intelligence, skills, and behaviors of a registered respiratory therapist through various technical courses and clinical experiences. These experiences include cardiopulmonary assessment, basic care in oxygen, aerosol, hyperinflation, bronchial hygiene therapies, critical care, physiologic monitoring, cardiopulmonary diagnostics and rehabilitation, home care, as well as perinatal and pediatric respiratory care. The primary purpose of respiratory care is to aid the physician in the diagnostic evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of patients with lung and/or heart disease.

The religion, humanities, social sciences, math, and sciences courses assist the student to develop an understanding of self, the environment, and one’s relationship to life and service. In addition, the respiratory care student will study the expanded therapist’s role in the healthcare system including research, leadership, management, and education.
