When I signed up at Baker College, I knew that I wanted to pursue a career in Respiratory Care.  What I didn’t know was that along with all of my knowledge I would become part of a family. Not only did I get the knowledge I needed to pass my boards, but I knew that somebody cared.  I had a dream, and my teachers helped me make it happen.  At times it was tough, because expectations were high, but I soon realized it was only for my benefit.  When there were struggles, the instructors and classmates were always there for me. I know I wouldn’t be able to get the experience that I did anywhere else.
As for the clinical aspect, I got to experience life changing events with my patients. There is nothing more rewarding then seeing what you can do with your own two hands. The program was more than I thought it would be. My eyes have been opened to endless opportunities.

My experience with the respiratory care program at Baker College was one of the most challenging times of my life; however, it was also the most rewarding. I was blown away by the knowledge of my teachers and the experience they brought to my learning experience. 

I was so proud of myself because of the very difficult material that I was able to understand. Because of the preparation I was given at Baker, I was able to pass all board exams the first time. I am truly looking forward to a fulfilling career in respiratory care and have Baker’s exceptional teachers to thank.

Being accepted into the Respiratory Care Program at Baker College of Auburn Hills has changed my life. I attended two schools before I found my niche at Baker. I could not have asked for a better experience in my education. The program has enabled me to see that my dreams of becoming a therapist are within arm’s reach. It has given me real life experience at various hospitals. 

My family has told me that they have never seen a person so passionate about what they want to do, and I’m sure that the passion I have for respiratory care has only been enhanced by the wonderful teachers I’ve had at Baker. The respiratory care program has helped me flourish and have the confidence I now have in the profession of respiratory care.

Looking back at my first year in Baker College's Respiratory Care program, I am amazed at how much I have learned.  The instructors are extremely knowledgeable in the field and are excellent at communicating that knowledge to their students.  My clinical experiences have also been exceptional.  I just can't believe how far I have come in the last year. I know I made the right choice when I came to Baker in large part due to their commitment to the students.

I believe this program is preparing me for what I believe will be my life long career. The class instruction, together with the clinical experiences, is excellent. I have learned so much in a short period of time. I am always learning something new in clinicals. It is very hard and intense work, but well worth it.

I cannot say enough GOOD things about the Respiratory Care program! The instructors are great and they have a genuine interest in each student. They wanted me to succeed as much as I wanted to succeed. Upon graduation I was thoroughly prepared to successfully pass the board exams and begin a new, exciting career!

My experience at Baker College put me on the path to a career that I truly love. I have found confidence in myself, knowing that I carry the knowledge to help others, and feeling rewarded in the work that I do. I have made lifelong friends with my classmates and I have mentors who I know will be there for me to give advice and help when they can. After 2 years, I've come so far and I know my professional future will be a success.
