If you want to earn the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential, you will need to take the RRT exam developed by the National Board for Respiratory Care (NBRC). The NBRC maintains a Registry Examination System for respiratory care professionals, and the RRT exam is part of that system.
Application Process. To apply for the RRT credential, you will need to apply online using the "Submit Application" link on the NBRC website (www.nbrc.org) or submit a paper application. The NBRC will then evaluate your application for eligibility. To be eligible for the exam, you must be a certified respiratory therapist (CRT) by the NBRC. If you are approved to take the RRT exam, you will receive a confirmation notice that will tell you how to contact the NBRC to schedule an exam appointment. The exams are given at testing centers throughout the United States.
RRT Exam Content. The RRT exam includes 115 multiple-choice questions (100 scored and 15 pretest items) and takes about two hours to complete. Questions on the exam cover the recall, application, and analysis of clinical data; equipment use; and therapeutic procedures specific to respiratory care.
How to Prepare. You should plan to study regularly for the RRT exam in the months preceding your test date. You may want to borrow or purchase an RRT study guide, which will provide sample questions, practice tests, and test-taking strategies. The NBRC website also offers a free RRT practice exam that may be helpful.
