Nuclear Medicine Technology Associate Degree
Nuclear medicine technologists administer radiopharmaceuticals and operate imaging equipment to diagnose and treat diseases.
Unlike other types of imaging, nuclear medicine allows technologists to show the structure and function of nearly every major organ. PA College offers both a full-time, two-year associate degree and a one-year academic certificate. Upon program completion, you’ll be eligible to take the national certification exams and begin a career as a nuclear medicine technologist.
Graduate outcomes are indicators of program effectiveness, demonstrating the extent to which a program achieves its goals. Programmatic graduate outcomes data reported on the JRCNMT website include: 5-year time period of current report; graduation rate; ARRT credentialing success; NMTCB credentialing success and job placement rate.
Our nuclear medicine technology program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Nuclear Medicine Technology. See more accreditation information.
Applicants for the two-year associate degree program must meet general admission requirements.
