Radiography A.S.

Description

This is a 63 credit degree program that includes 33 credits of general education and science courses and 30 credits of specialized Radiography courses. Upon completion of total credits, students will receive an associate degree in science as well as a certificate in radiography, allowing them to sit for the ARRT national examination. The general education and lab science courses will be provided by HCCC, and taught by HCCC instructors at either or both of their campus locations. The professional component is a 24 month clinical competency based educational program. Radiologic technologists (radiographers) perform diagnostic imaging examinations. Students are taught how to take x-rays of the human body in order to diagnose medical problems. They prepare patients for the exams by explaining the procedure and positioning them so that the parts of the body can be appropriately radiographed. They are taught how the radiation beam is created; set technical factors in order to produce diagnostic radiographs and how to prevent unnecessary exposure to radiation to both themselves and the patient. The student accomplishes this by integrating science and technology and learning how to provide compassionate, caring, and unbiased patient care to people of all ages and backgrounds. The State of New Jersey Bureau of Radiological Health (Board) requires all students graduating from a Board certified radiography program to successfully demonstrate competency in over 50 radiological examinations performed on patients prior to graduation. This standard is designed to produce entry level skilled graduates who are clinically competent and practice quality patient care methodologies.
