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 in the world. 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. The good news is — it’s all available for you now so that you don’t have to go at it alone like I did.

If you take look around the site, you will find:

  • Our Test Bank which is loaded with study guides and practice questions covering every topic you’ll see in RT school.
  • Our TMC Practice Exam that mimics the real thing so you can practice and prepare.
  • Our TMC Study Guide which is a fully comprehensive review that covers everything (top to bottom) that will be on the TMC Exam. It’s already helped thousands of students pass the exam.
  • Our TMC Test Bank that has over 1000 practice questions, answers, and detailed rationales explaining why each answer is correct. Going through practice questions is one of the most effective strategies for preparing for boards, might I add.
  • Our CSE Study Guide that can get you ready to pass the Clinical Simulations Exam.
  • Articles and blog posts
  • Online Courses
  • Free videos
  • And tons of more valuable and entertaining information!

Sound too good to be true? Let me tell ya — it’s not. You don’t even have to take my word for it. You can just take a 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 licensure exam?”

Those are valid questions.

Yes, I did just finish Respiratory Therapy School a few short years ago, but let me explain.

Throughout my experience as a student, while earning two college degrees, I’ve 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 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?

Honestly, my real name isn’t important.

What’s important is helping and guiding students along their journey of 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 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
