Does being a licensed respiratory therapist exempt a person from pre-requisites for an anesthetist program? I see a program called The Michener Institute that says you must be an RN or an RT with two years experience and lists a few other minor requirements. It says nothing about organic chemistry, biochemistry and such. It even looks like you can go part-time. Am I getting titles confused? I think I understand that a nurse anesthetist and an anesthesiologist assistant are similar, but are there other professionals that deal with anesthesia? (besides an MD Anesthesiologist)
I'm doing pre-requisites for Respiratory Therapy and I want to know what options there may be for the future. I've heard of a Perfusionist, as well. I want to know if all of these professions require years and years of chemistry as well as top grades, which I don't have. If someone could please help me make sense of this, I'd sure appreciate it! Thanks!
