The NSRC wants to encourage respiratory therapists from across Nebraska to get involved and join the American Association for Respiratory Care (AARC). What does the AARC membership do for you? It will help you become a better respiratory therapist, says Lil O'Neill, NSRC president.
Respiratory therapists who join as a new member in January will be entered into the drawing for a $100.00 Amazon gift card. The NSRC's goal is to increase membership by 10 percent, O'Neill said.
There is still time for NSRC members to submit their names for the upcoming 2020 elections for the NSRC Board of Directors. There are a few positions that have no applicants at this time.
"This is a great opportunity for you to promote our profession, network with other RTs and be involved at the state level," said President Lil O'Neill.
The Nebraska Society for Respiratory Care was awarded the 2019 Summit Award during the Annual Business Meeting held at AARC Congress in New Orleans on Nov. 10, 2019.

2019 Respiratory Care Week started Sunday, Oct. 20 and runs through Saturday, Oct. 26.
"This is a great chance to reach out to our community, patients, and colleagues, and share your story," said Lil O'Neill, NSRC president. "Let them know about the many unique benefits respiratory therapists bring each day to patient care."
