About Respiratory Therapy Zone
Why hello there! 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. 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 bit, so keep reading.)
I’m a Registered Respiratory Therapist, just like you will be soon if you’re not already.
I have experience in all parts of the hospital but mostly the Emergency Room. I guess you can say I’m an adrenaline junkie.
It wasn’t too long ago that I was in your shoes as an RT student!
Do I miss those day? Well, 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!
Not too long ago, I was doing what you’re doing — balancing multiple tests per week with 12-hour clinical days. Not to mention all the homework and projects.
It’s madness! I remember it very vividly.
That’s exactly why I created this website!
I want to make life easier for you AND every other Respiratory Therapy Student on the planet. Period.
I’m striving for this site to serve as the resource I never had as a student.
This is why I’ve spent thousands of hours of my own time creating tons of content and study materials that I wish I had as a student. We do offer some premium materials but 99% of the content here is free available for you.
That’s great news because it means that you don’t have to go at it alone
If you take look around the site, you will find:
Sounds too good to be true, right? Let me tell ya — it’s not.
You don’t even have to take my word for it. You can look at some of the Testimonials and Reviews we’ve received from students just like you.
And 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 board exams?”
Those are valid questions.
Yes, I did just finish Respiratory Therapy School a few short years ago, but allow me to explain.
Throughout my experience as a student, while earning two college degrees, I’ve developed certain skills and techniques that really made learning easy for me.
I was able to graduate with the highest GPA in my class and went on to pass the TMC Exam AND Clinical Sims on my first attempt.
I’ve been able to document everything I’ve learned here on this website and thankfully, we’ve helped thousands of students pass the exams and earn their RRT credential.
And now, I hoping that we can help you do the same.
I’m not telling you all of this to brag. I’m telling you this because I know that if I can do it — and other students 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 whenever that time comes.
And as I said before, I want to do everything I can to make your life easier.
This isn’t to say you won’t have to put in a lot of hard work. Trust me, you most definitely will.
But with our help, you can be sure that you’re headed in the right direction to increase your chances of being successful.
So, why don’t I share my real name?
Honestly, my real name is not important.
What is important is helping and guiding students along their journey to becoming a Respiratory Therapist. I’m not looking for attention or praise. I don’t want any of the focus to be on me.
I want it to be on YOU.
And besides, Johnny Lung is way cooler than me anyway. 😎
So again, I sincerely just want to say thank you for reading this far. We’re on this journey together. We can do this one step at a time.
Yes, RT school is hard but keep in mind — if it were easy, 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.
I want to give you one final word of encouragement:
You got this!
You, my friend, can do this! And I look forward to helping you every step of the way!
Breathe easy, my friend!
