About Respiratory Therapy Zone
Wow, this is awesome! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit our ‘About’ page.
My name is Johnny Lung, and I’m the guy in the photo to the right. Okay, okay. Johnny Lung isn’t my real name. But it’s what you can call me while you’re here (I’ll tell you why in a second).
I’m a Registered Respiratory Therapist, just like you will be soon if you’re not already. I have a bachelor’s degree in Science and I currently work and live in the Memphis, TN area. I love being a Respiratory Therapist. I have experience in all parts of the hospital but you can mostly find me working in the Emergency Room. What can I say, I’m an action junkie.
It wasn’t too long ago that I was in your shoes as an RT student! Do I miss those days? Not exactly.
Let’s face it, Respiratory Therapy school is hard. Tests and clinicals are hard. The board exams are hard. It’s all hard! I was just doing what you’re doing by balancing multiple tests per week with 12-hour clinical days, along with homework and projects; it’s madness! I remember it very vividly.
And that’s why I created this website.
I want to make life easier for you and every other Respiratory Therapy student. Period. I’m striving for this site to serve as the resource I never had as a student.
This is why I’ve created tons of study materials and information that I wish I had as a student. The good news is, it’s available for you now so that you don’t have to go at it alone
If you take look around the site, you will find:
- Our Test Bank which is loaded with study guides and practice questions that can help you ace your exams in RT school.
- Our TMC Study Guide that is helping many students pass the TMC Exam on their first attempt.
- Our TMC Test Bank has over 1000 questions, answers, and rationales exactly like the ones you’ll see on your boards.
- We have a free TMC Practice Exam so you can test your knowledge.
- Hundreds of helpful article and blog posts.
- Courses and videos
- And loads of more helpful information. Respiratory Therapy Zone has already helped thousands of RT students around the world. You can see what students are saying about us by checking out some of their reviews and testimonials.
You may be thinking, “Why should I listen to someone who just graduated only a few years ago? How can this nerd possibly help me with school and help me pass the licensure exam?”
Those are valid questions.
Yes, I did just finish respiratory school, but allow me to explain.
Throughout my experience as a student, while earning two college degrees, I developed skills and techniques that really made learning easy for me. I was able to graduate with the highest GPA in my class while never failing a single test. Then I went on to pass the TMC Exam as well as the Clinical Sims… on my first try!
And I can show and tell you exactly how I did it!
I’m not telling you all of this to brag. I’m telling you this because I know that if I can do it, so can you!
It’s my goal to share with you the exact strategies and tactics I used to succeed as a Respiratory Therapy student and help you pass the board exams when that time comes. I want to make your life easier!
This isn’t to say you won’t have to put in a lot of hard work. You will. But I can give you the tools and get you started in the right direction to increase your chances of being successful.
So why don’t I share my real name?
So again, I sincerely thank you for reading this far. We’re on this journey together. We can do this one step at a time. Yes, RT school can be hard but keep in mind – if it were easy then everyone would do it, wouldn’t they?
Take pride in the fact that, someday, you’ll be the only thing standing in the way between life and death for your patient. So you must build a solid foundation for your career and it all starts now with your education.
You got this; you can do this! And I look forward to helping you along the way.
We send out valuable information on a regular basis that you don’t want to miss. All you have to do is opt into our email list. You’ll even get a free gift for doing so. 🙂
Breathe easy, my friend,
Johnny Lung RRT BS
