What is the mission of the BSRT Committee?

  • To update Respiratory Care Practitioners (RCPs) in Florida on efforts being made in other states or on the national level to advance the RT baccalaureate.

  • To seek input from all respiratory therapy communities of interest in Florida (bedside clinicians, managers, educators, students. etc.) regarding issues that must be addressed in any proposal to promote the RT baccalaureate (i.e. no decrease in the number of graduates entering the workforce, minimizing impact on AS RT programs, etc.).

  • To issue recommendations on various models to the communities of interest via presentation and a white paper.

  • To develop a listing of models for promoting the RT baccalaureate in Florida that, to the fullest extent possible, addresses the needs of these communities of interest.

  • To serve as a contact point for discussions with other states or national agencies, such as the American Association of Respiratory Care (AARC) and the Committee on Baccalaureate and Graduate Respiratory Therapy Education (CoBGRTE), regarding their efforts to promote the RT baccalaureate.
