Leading college education and resource provider, the Community for Accredited Online Schools, has released its list of the Best Respiratory Therapy Schools in the U.S. for the 2016-2017 school year. The site assessed both online and on-campus respiratory therapist programs, ranking each based on more than a dozen unique data points to measure overall excellence. Top finishers include Highline College, Middle Georgia State University, Northern Michigan University, Dalton State College, Keiser University Fort Lauderdale, Kansas City Kansas Community College, Spokane Community College, Delaware Technical Community College Owens, Muskegon Community College and Delaware Technical Community College in Stanton Wilmington.

“With a higher than average median salary and faster than average jobs growth projections, respiratory therapy may be an enticing career choice for those who are college-bound,” said Doug Jones, CEO and Founder of the Community for Accredited Online Schools. “This list is a great resource for students looking for schools who have made respiratory therapy a priority, offering a quality education along with career placement services that help students get ahead after earning their degree.”

To be considered for the Best Respiratory Therapy Schools ranking, colleges must be accredited, public or private not-for-profit institutions. Each school is also required to provide career placement services to be eligible. The site scores and ranks each qualifying college based on a comparison of school-specific statistics, including student teacher ratios and financial aid availability, to determine which provides the best overall value.
