Action: Program Change Proposal: Respiratory Therapy Program


Nature of the Change:

  1. The offering of RTH 101 Fundamentals of Respiratory Care I will be moved from the fall semester of the first year (Mansfield campus) to the spring semester of the first year (Sayre campus).

  2. The prerequisites for the following respiratory therapy courses offered in the spring semester of the first year shall be BSC 121 Human Anatomy & Physiology I and MA 128 College Algebra with a grade of "C-", or better, and a cumulative GPA of 2.00:

    RTH 101 Fundamentals of Respiratory Care I

    RTH 102 Fundamentals of Respiratory Care II

    RTH 199 Clinical Practicum I

  3. All math electives currently listed on the Respiratory Therapy ER will be deleted except MA 128. All incoming respiratory therapy students will be required to take MA 128 College Algebra in their first fall semester at Mansfield.


Purpose of Change:

This change will enable students in the Respiratory Therapy program to have a foundation in Math before taking the first RTH course. It will also eliminate the problem of having a program driven Math course offered in Sayre.
