“What interested me in El Centro’s Respiratory Care program was the ability to start a professional career that has direct ‘one on one’ patient care in a field where the demand for skilled professionals is escalating.
“The education I received has provided the ‘bridge’ I needed for a better future for myself. It has opened many doors and brought more options and opportunities into my life than I ever thought possible. The instructors are highly invested in their students’ success and make every reasonable effort to see that you will succeed. All the
instructors in the Respiratory Care program at El Centro are incredible educators, mentors and passionate advocates.
“Why would I recommend this program? As a student you will have the benefit of having instructors with many years of field experience. You will have the opportunity to gain experience as a therapist during clinical rotations throughout hospitals such as Parkland, Methodist and Children’s, just to mention a few. You will graduate with confidence that you never knew you had. Best of all, you will have many employers and job opportunities waiting for you upon graduation. Nothing is impossible!”
