RESPIRATORY THERAPY :: Kristi Caruso (Success Story)

“Without the opportunities of Victor Valley College, I can honestly say that I wouldn't be where I am today.  I started the program when I was 19 years old--without any hospital work experience--and I was hoping to fulfill my life long dream of becoming a Respiratory Therapist.  The experience that I gained in the classroom prepared me for my clinical rotations in the hospital. Everything I learned and the situations I faced helped prepare me for my licensing exams and my transition from being a student into a Respiratory Care Practitioner. At times I thought I was never going to make it, but the instructors that are involved in the Respiratory Therapy Program at Victor Valley College encouraged me not to give up and were completely unselfish with their time and knowledge.  Their goal was to craft me into an outstanding respiratory therapist. The experience that I gained at Victor Valley College is priceless because it gave me the groundwork that I needed in order to build my knowledge and professional experience.  If you are considering entering the hospital field, or even if you know you want to be a Respiratory Therapist but are trying to decide which school to attend, I urge you to strongly consider VVC as your school to learn about the dynamic field of Respiratory Therapy.  There's more to Respiratory then most people realize!  Do you have what it takes?”
