Hi Jasmin,

Respiratory therapists are required to at least obtain an associate's degree in respiratory therapy but also must obtain certification through the National Board for Respiratory Care. Once you've met these requirements the biggest challenge will be keeping up with all the changes in technology which is constantly changing and the field is becoming more advanced.  The key will be to learn as much as you can about the field and make sure you keep up with the continuing education courses that are offered. If you are interested in this field I recommend shadowing a respiratory therapist for a day.  For more information on respiratory therapy check out this article http://trainingfyi.net/article/pros-cons-respiratory-therapy-profession
