Respiratory Care

A Tradition of Respiratory Care

Shenandoah University's program in Respiratory Care has been in existence longer than any other program in the state of Virginia. The Division of Respiratory Care offers several degree options and makes earning a degree convenient by offering a transfer track where students may transfer their associate degree or credit hours into the bachelor of science in Respiratory Care degree. Shenandoah students receive a comprehensive education in a state-of-the-art laboratory and benefit from the university's close relationship with the Winchester Medical Center and hospitals in northern Virginia for their clinical opportunities.
