Three Respiratory Therapy programs at SJVC have received the 2021 Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success Award from the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care (CoARC).
SJVC Respiratory Therapy programs at the Bakersfield, Temecula and Rancho Cordova campuses have all received the 2021 Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success Award as a recognition of the program’s success in inspiring its graduates to achieve their highest educational and professional aspirations.
“We are honored to see so many of our Respiratory Therapy programs recognized for their success and student outcomes,” said President of SJVC, Nick Gomez. “Respiratory therapists play a critical role in patient care and I am proud of our exceptional faculty,” added Gomez. “This is an important recognition as SJVC has remained focused on providing a quality education while preparing students for careers as registered respiratory therapists.”
The Distinguished RRT Credentialing Success Award is presented as part of the CoARC’s continued efforts to value the RRT credential as a standard of professional achievement. With a focus on program effectiveness, the CoARC Board used objective criteria to evaluate colleges across the country based on key accreditation metrics documented in the 2019 Annual Report of Current Status.
