Accreditation and Licensure Information
The Respiratory Care Program at Naugatuck Valley Community College meets the state education requirements for a Respiratory Care Practitioner license in the state of Connecticut.
The NVCC Respiratory Care Program has not determined if the associate degree in respiratory care meets the state education requirements in any other state, any U.S. Territory, or the District of Columbia. Applicants should investigate licensure requirements prior to accepting an offer of admission to the program.
Each state is responsible for establishing the requirements for licensure/certification. Students who intend to seek licensure in any state other than Connecticut need to consult with the state professional licensing board or the state’s department of public health. The states make the decision on whether an individual is eligible for licensure based on the rules and regulations in place at the time the individual submits their application for licensure.
