Nuclear Medicine Technology

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.

Online Program

The Nuclear Medicine Program may be completed totally online with the exception of the anatomy and physiology and 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.
