- Board of Respiratory Care
The purpose of this advisory is to remind all licensed respiratory therapists in the Commonwealth of their responsibility to renew his/her license every two years on the even numbered years.
The Board requires all respiratory therapists in the Commonwealth to maintain a current license to practice. If a respiratory therapist’s license expires, he or she is no longer authorized to practice or to use the title "Respiratory Therapist" during the period in which the license is expired. Practice after license expiration may result in disciplinary action against the license by the Board. Furthermore, the Board may refer any and all unauthorized practice to appropriate law enforcement for additional action.
The Board strongly encourages all employers to ensure that all respiratory therapists under their supervision maintain current respiratory therapist licenses.
