Respiratory Therapist Named a “Best Job” by U.S. News
U.S. News Tags Respiratory Therapist as a Hot Job

Respiratory therapist is in the top 25 of the best 100 jobs for 2013 named by U.S. World and News Report.

Tim Myers, MBA, RRT, FAARC, Associate Executive Director of the AARC, was interviewed by the magazine, which annually ranks the best jobs on the short term horizon. Myers said, “We like to call ourselves the Rodney Dangerfield of healthcare.” He said it’s not because we get no respect, but that “people don’t know about respiratory therapists. We’re often confused with nurses.”

The annual ranking by the magazine lists several health care jobs as good bets for today’s workforce.
