Nevada Respiratory Therapy Schools.

Respiratory therapists in Nevada are licensed through the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners and must graduate from a school recognized by a national accrediting agency. Graduates are then eligible to take the written state exam needed to become licensed.

All of the Nevada respiratory therapy schools offer associate degree programs. Students learn skills such as how to complete patient assessments, work with equipment such as mechanical ventilators, and administer various types of breathing treatments. However, Nevada does not have as many respiratory therapy schools as some other states, but be aware that all schools will require certain immunizatinos such as hepatitis B and rubella before starting clinical work in hospitals.

Tuition costs vary for Nevada respiratory therapy schools, but state colleges are usually less expensive than private technical schools. However, due to the limited number of RT programs in Nevada, students should also factor in travel and relocation costs.

Training Options

Private Schools

  • Apollo College in Las Vegas offers a full time program which takes two years to complete, and consists of classroom instruction and clinical assignments at both small hospitals and large trauma centers in Nevada. The curriculum includes adult, pediatric and neonatal critical care. While the tuition runs into the thousands, the school's finanacial aid program can advise students on payment options.
  • Pima Medical Institute in Las Vegas admits students twice a year to their two year program. Students take chemistry and microbiology during the program, but there are no prerequisites. Students will learn diagnostic procedures such as pulmonary function tests and arterial blood gas interpretation, and will undergo clinical rotations and classes in adult critical care, neonatal respiratory care and pediatrics.

State Colleges

  • The College of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas offers a full time two-year program, which also involves a clinical internship at an area hospital during a summer semester. Applicants must complete prerequisite classes including medical terminology, anatomy and physiology with a 2.5 GPA, pass the Essential Academic Skills Test and be interviewed by a faculty member. The respiratory therapy program is part of the School of Health Sciences which requires students to attend a Health Programs Orientation and undergo background checks before beginning hospital rotations. Students may also be subject to random drug testing.
