MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
I know it’s still February but it’s hard not to already be thinking about Spring on March 20th! Hope springs eternal when thoughts of sunny skies and warm weather are in the near future. There’s much to be hopeful for in Respiratory Care too! There are students with senioritis as they think about graduation in May or in August. There are many RTs starting new jobs as they jump on the opportunities that agencies give them due to the pandemic. There are departments that get the opportunity to retool and rebuild with new, excited and engaged staff, creating themselves over again. There are also many avenues for clinical advancement, which the ISRC is pursuing to advance the practice of Respiratory Care Practitioners in Illinois.
Advanced Practice Respiratory Therapist is one area the ISRC is working to advance. These would not just be RTs working at the top of their license. ...Read More
There is also work being done on helping to define vascular access work, providing conscious sedation, and many other areas that need more support and involvement from IL RTs. Now is the time for you to become involved in your state society to help advance your profession of Respiratory Care. It will take many more than the few RTs involved right now in the ISRC to make these dreams realities. It will take your involvement, your support and your efforts to make things like APRT in IL a true pathway for you to pursue.
Thank you for being an Illinois RT!
