Radiologic Technology (A.A.S.)- The Radiologic Technology program is a two-year (i.e., four semesters and three summer sessions) program leading to the Associate in Applied Science degree. This is a day only program starting each Fall semester. The curriculum combines liberal arts studies and technical courses with clinical education at affiliated hospitals in Nassau and Suffolk counties. The Radiologic Technology student is trained to work under the supervision of a physician in the diagnostic applications of x-rays. Responsibilities of the Radiologic Technologist include; positioning of patients, handling of complex equipment, and utilizing radiation protection devices. In addition to these technical skills, the technologist's duties require him/her to attend to the physical and emotional needs of patients who are often acutely ill or seriously injured. The program is accredited under the Nassau Community College accreditation granted by The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and by the New York State Department of Health. Graduates are eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists examination to become a Registered Radiologic Technologist and to obtain New York State Licensure. Opportunities for professional advancement and continuing education at the B.S. degree level are available.
The program maintains two fully functional radiologic suites. These radiology rooms are designs to give the radiology student a comprehensive training in all aspects of radiology imaging. Both radiology suites are equipped with the latest imaging modalities; DR imaging, CR imaging, and film imaging.
To be eligible for admission to the Radiologic Technology Program, candidates must meet academic requirements, must be legally eligible for employment and licensure in the United States at the time of application, and must be of "good moral character" as defined by the New York State Department of Health applicable to the profession of Radiologic Technology.
