All 13 of Fletcher Tech Community College’s graduates in the cardiopulmonary program have landed jobs before they even officially finished the program. They have finished their courses at this point but still have a pinning ceremony this week to commemorate the completion of the program and transition to the workforce. The 2 year program has been located at Fletcher since 2010 and is very fast paced. It prepares students to treat patients of every age that have been diagnosed with severe and chronic cardiopulmonary conditions. These patients may have underdeveloped lungs and/or lung disease. Students learn to help patients on mechanical ventilation with oxygenation, ventilation and airway management to maintain life support.
Chancellor Kristine Strickland said, “A true testament to the achievements of these students and the quality of the program at Fletcher is indicated by the 100 percent placement rate of our students. Fletcher recognizes that our work is aligned with the needs of our business and industry partners and we are pleased that so many organizations have recognized the quality of our graduates and offered them positions. We wish our students the best of luck as they begin their new careers in healthcare.” For more on this story, click here.
