This site is very informative. The RRT clinical simulation exam is an important part of your boards to get your Registered Respiratory Therapist license. My suggestion for this site would be to add anything that anyone has ever seen on the clin sim on the RRT exam. So for example, if you ever remember any kind of case scenario after taking the RRT exam, feel free to post on here! It would help a lot of us RT students out by helping us prepare to take our boards. Thanks Everyone!!!
