I absolutely love the BSRT program because everyone was so helpful in me striving for my degree and success. I am very thankful that I was able to be flexible in the program with my being in active duty military duty.

What I am learning & what I have learned is WELL worth the hard work & sacrifice of time & money. I am so excited to be part of the promotion of this field as well. I believe in our field, & I am an eager advocate for the requirement that all RTs hold a bachelor's degree.
