The Nuclear Medicine Technology program prepares students to practice as professional, capable technologists in a variety of culturally diverse health care settings. Through a structured curriculum comprised of both academic and directed clinical experience, students progress from novice to proficient health care practitioners and graduate with the skills necessary to perform high-quality nuclear medicine procedures. The Nuclear Medicine Technology program provides two options: a one-year certificate option for students who have current licensure or certification in radiography, nursing, respiratory therapy, radiation therapy or medical lab technology; and a two-year Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree. Both options require evidence of successful completion of prerequisite courses and current certification in basic cardiac life support (CPR for healthcare professionals). The Nuclear Medicine program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRCNMT), 2000 W. Danforth Road, Suite 130 #203, Edmond, OK 73003; telephone: 405-285-0546; fax: 405-285-0579; e-mail: jrcnmt@coxinet.net. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) exam and to use the credential CNMT upon successful completion of the exam. Graduates are also eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam and to use the credential RT(N) when successfully completing the exam.
