Help Your Profession and Win a One-Year AARC Membership!

Are you curious about how your salary compares with that earned by other therapists? Did you ever wonder how many therapists are involved in special procedures like conscious sedation and emergency intubation? The AARC’s 2014 Respiratory Therapist Human Resources Study will answer these questions and many others that relate to the respiratory therapist workforce. Respiratory therapists and their employers will participate in surveys to help the AARC determine the following information about the respiratory therapist workforce:

  • Wages paid
  • Current and future supply and demand
  • The percent of positions vacant in all work venues
  • Turnover for full and part time employees
  • Demographics and characteristics
  • Patient services provided
  • Credentials and certifications held
  • What is being done to recruitment and retain them

All respiratory therapists (regardless of professional position) are encouraged to participate in this easy web-based survey process. Simply go to the 2014 AARC Human Resource Survey of Respiratory Therapists survey page.

You should be able to complete the short respiratory therapist survey in about 15–20 minutes and will not have to do any research to answer the easy questions. Your confidentiality is guaranteed. Please hurry, as the survey will only be available until July 25, 2014. The results will available by the late fall. Please encourage your fellow therapists who may not yet be AARC members to participate also. Your participation is very important to make this a success.

In addition, participants may opt to register for a drawing. One lucky study participant will be randomly selected to receive one complimentary year of AARC active membership!
