TO: Interested Parties – Respiratory Therapists and Polysomnographic Technologists Licensing Board
FROM: Cerynthia Murphy, Qualification Analyst
SUBJECT: Respiratory Therapists – Licensure Requirements – January 1, 2018
During the 2017 Legislative Session HB 3014 was passed simplifying the process to obtain a respiratory therapy license while still ensuring that qualified individuals gain licensure in Oregon.
On August 9, 2017, the Respiratory Therapists and Polysomnographic Technologists Licensing Board (Board) voted to adopted changes to the Oregon Administrative Rules, which affect application requirements to obtain permanent licensure as a Respiratory Therapist.
As of January 1, 2018, Oregon Administrative Rule 331-710-0010 requires application for licensure to include verification and submission of the following:
· Active credential through the National Board of Respiratory Care (NBRC) as a Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT); and
· Successful passage of the Respiratory Therapy Oregon Laws and Rules Examination.
Please Note: The requirements listed above are not inclusive of all application requirements as specified within Oregon Administrative Rule 331-710-0010 to obtain permanent licensure, only new requirements as adopted within the Oregon Administrative Rules effective January 1, 2018.
Prior to January 1, 2018
As part of the application requirements to obtain permanent licensure, individuals may provide verification of the Certified Respiratory Therapist (CRT) examination administered by the NBRC, which will not be an option after January 1, 2018.
An official copy of the Oregon Administrative Rules can be obtained on the Health Licensing Office’s website at www.healthoregon.org/hlo.
