Respiratory therapists work in hospitals, patient’s homes, doctor’s offices, and nursing facilities to diagnose lung and breathing disorders and recommend treatments.  Students in the pre-respiratory care program may complete two years of preparatory course work at K-State before application to respiratory therapy programs.
