This is a sample curriculum.  Other variations are possible.  Students should meet with their advisor to plan schedule and ensure that required courses are completed for internship application and graduation.

*Each student intern will develop a specialty option in his/her area of primary interest. Each specialty consists of RC 494 - Individual Study (4 credits) and a minimum of 12 special elective academic credits. The specialty option is initiated in the latter part of the internship year and presented prior to completion of the internship to a respiratory care consortial committee or its designates, for approval. Once approved, any changes must occur by petition to the consortial committee. A list of approved special electives can be found at www.ndsu.edu/alliedsciences/respiratory_care/rc_494_special_electives. 

While every effort is made to provide accurate and current information, curriculum requirements tend to be updated annually. Students are subject to meeting the curriculum requirements in effect at the time of entrance into a major or program of study. Please contact your advisor.
