Nuclear Medicine Technology
The Nuclear Medicine Technology AAS Degree Program (campus-based option) has extended the deadline to apply for summer semester 2017. Individuals who will meet the application and prerequisite requirements by the end of spring semester 2017 are eligible to apply.
The Nuclear Medicine Technology curriculum provides the clinical and didactic experience necessary to prepare students to qualify as entry-level nuclear medicine technologists.
Students will acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to properly perform clinical procedures. These skills include patient care, use of radioactive materials, operation of imaging and counting instrumentation, and laboratory procedures.
Graduates may be eligible to apply for certification/registration examinations given by the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
The Nuclear Medicine diploma option may be completed totally online with the exception of the clinical practice rotations, which are made available in the student's geographic location through a joint effort facilitated by the student and the nuclear medicine faculty.
