Joshua Gillman, BS, RRT, ACCS, has successfully completed the Adult Critical Care Specialty Examination. This credential is administered by the National Board for Respiratory Care.
The Adult Critical Care Specialty Examination program is designed specifically for a respiratory therapist with the Registered Respiratory Therapist (RRT) credential and experience in the field of adult critical care. Eligible certificants have already demonstrated advanced knowledge in the field of respiratory care; therefore the examination focuses on competencies unique to therapists practicing in an adult critical care setting and not basic competencies of general respiratory care. Currently, less than 200 RRTs have passed this examination in the U.S.
Gillman has been employed at Conway Medical Center as the assistant director of Cardio Pulmonary Service since 2006 and has been a respiratory therapist for 10 years. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in respiratory care from the University of Charleston in Charleston, WV. Gillman is a member of the American Association Respiratory Care and the National Board of Respiratory Care.
