Nicholas Prush, MHA, RRT-ACCS

Respiratory Therapy Program Manager/Lecturer

Nicholas Prush MHA, RRT-ACCS has been a respiratory therapist for 15 years and his career began as a student respiratory therapy technician at the University of Michigan Health System. He graduated from Henry Ford Community College with an AAS in 2003 and accepted a full-time position at University of Michigan Health System as a registered respiratory therapist (RRT). Later in his career he worked at Beaumont Royal Oak and Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital. He was given an opportunity to create a respiratory therapy department from the ground up when Henry Ford West Bloomfield was being constructed.

Mr. Prush began teaching at Oakland Community College with their Respiratory Therapy Program as an Adjunct Professor and as time went on, he began teaching as an adjunct with Monroe County Community College where he was then offered the director of clinical education (DCE) position which he gladly accepted. He was the DCE for four years when the Program Director retired and he was able to take over this position for the following two years. Now he finds himself at the University of Michigan-Flint to begin a bachelor of science in respiratory therapy (BSRT) program and could not be more excited! He looks forward to the opportunity in working throughout the community.
