Wisconsin Healthcare Careers

Respiratory therapist

Respiratory therapists care for patients who have trouble breathing—for example, because of a chronic condition such as asthma.

The median annual pay is $71,300 per year in Wisconsin, and it is expected that the need for this position will increase by 13% (much faster than average) in the next 10 years.

An associate's degree is required to become a respiratory therapist.

Most respiratory therapists work full time. Because they may work in medical facilities that are always open, such as hospitals, they may have shifts that include nights, weekends or holidays.

You may be a good fit for this opportunity if you excel in compassion, attention to detail, interpersonal skills, patience, and problem-solving skills.
