Why are we doing this at this time?
Conference 3 Recommendations l l 10 Recommendations from the Conference have completed Public Input Phase Next they will be published in Respiratory Care
What is the relevant AARC Recommendation? l Proposed concept: AARC request Co. ARC to change by 7/1/12 accreditation standard 1. 01 to read as follows: 1. 01 The sponsoring institution must be a postsecondary academic institution accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency that is recognized by the U. S. Department of Education (USDE) and must be authorized under applicable law or other acceptable authority to award graduates of the program a baccalaureate or graduate degree at the completion of the program. Programs accredited prior to 2013 that do not currently offer a baccalaureate or graduate degree must transition to conferring a baccalaureate or graduate degree, which should be awarded by the sponsoring institution, upon all RT students who matriculate into the program after 2020.
What does this mean in Plain English? All Respiratory Care Programs (accredited after 2013) must transition to offering either a Graduate Degree or a minimum of a Baccalaureate Degree. l CVT Profession will likely follow, , , l l l Deadline for all programs to comply – 2020? Co. ARC is not supportive @ this time

A National Perspective… l l l A Bachelor’s degree is likely to be the entry level educational standard for an increasing number of students entering the RC Profession between 2013 -2020. CVT may follow… Many Community Colleges will have to modify their mission or seek consortium partners. Seventeen states prevent CC’s from offering Bachelor’s degrees. l Florida is ahead on this issue with the State Colleges
