do I become licensed as a Radiologic Technologist in my state?
Most states require state licensure
in order to work as a radiologic technologist, and requirements
vary state by state.
Many, but not all, states use exam
scores from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and/or
ARRT credentials to make licensing decisions. Some states also ask the ARRT to
administer exams for state licensing purposes. It is generally in your best
interest to pursue credentials through the ARRT as well as pursuing state
licensure, as it helps you stand out in the radiology profession. Be sure to
review your individual state requirements to determine what works best for you.
are the educational requirements for state licensure in radiology?
As of January 1, 2015, the ARRT
requires certification candidates to have earned an associate degree or higher from
an accredited institution in order to sit for the national board registry exam
for licensure. This requirement extends to graduates of schools of radiology.
I enroll in this bachelor’s degree program even if I do not yet have a Radiology
or Radiography Certificate?
Students currently enrolled in or
planning to begin a Radiography program accredited by an agency acceptable to
the ARRT may enroll in the required general education courses at Saint Joseph's
College, either through the Associate of Science in Radiological Science
Administration (ASRSA) program or the Bachelor of Science in Radiological
Science Administration (BSRSA) program.
However, students may not complete
the Saint Joseph’s degree program until they have completed the Radiography Certificate
program, and transcripts have been verified. Formal training programs in Radiography
are not available at Saint Joseph's College.
