SCC wins approval for first Bachelor of Applied Science degree

— Respiratory therapy is a growing health care field and employers are increasing their requirements for educational levels and competencies for new respiratory therapists. That's why Spokane Community College will be offering a bachelor of applied science (BAS) in respiratory care beginning fall quarter 2017.

This will be the first four-year degree offered at SCC. The BAS degree builds on an already strong associate degree respiratory care program at SCC. The BAS will replace the college's AAS in respiratory care beginning this fall as the American Association for Respiratory Care is pushing for a bachelor's degree to be the minimum education required to enter the profession by 2020. Washington's State Board of Community and Technical Colleges, the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (the regional accrediting agency) and the Commission on Accreditation for Respiratory Care approved the new BAS.

SCC has had a respiratory care program for over 50 years. It started out at Deaconess Hospital in 1965, and in 1966 moved to SCC as the Inhalation Therapy Program for one-year graduates. In 1970, the program graduated its first inhalation therapist with an associate of applied science 2-year degree.

To apply or find out more, contact Gary White, SCC respiratory care instructor and program director at 509-533-7310 or Gary.White@scc.spokane.edu.
