The outlook for respiratory care jobs is promising as new treatments and technologies continue to expand the field. Respiratory therapists are responsible for diagnosing and treating patients with a wide range of conditions, from bronchitis to asthma to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Given genetic predispositions and environmental factors, such as smoking and air pollution, it’s no surprise that there are millions of Americans who have trouble breathing. And it’s also no surprise that respiratory therapist jobs are on the rise because of that.

In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates a 28% increase in respiratory therapist jobs between 2010 and 2020. The average across all occupations in the U.S. is 14% in comparison, so a career in respiratory care is a wise decision.

To improve your chances of landing a desirable position even more, certification is the way to go. Although it isn’t always required for employment, RTs can stand out from the competition by earning certification as either a Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) or a Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT), with the RRT certification being the optimal choice. Having the right education can make all the difference when you’re applying for respiratory therapist jobs posted here on our job board.
