How to Become a Radiological Technologist in Minnesota

As with most jobs in health care, becoming a radiologic technologist requires both a postsecondary education and a state license. Here are the basic steps students can expect to follow in order to become a radiologic technologist in Minnesota:

  1. Earn a high school diploma. This is the first step for most health care jobs. By taking classes in math and science, such as anatomy, biology, chemistry, physiology, and physics, students can build a solid foundation of knowledge before entering college.
  2. Earn an associate degree. The Associate of Applied Science is the most common degree among entry-level radiologic technologists. Students should make sure their program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) before enrolling.
  3. Get licensed or certified in the state of Minnesota. Check out the Minnesota state website for more details on state-specific requirements, or contact the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) to learn more about certification.

To be employed as a radiological technologist, diagnostic sonographer, nuclear medicine technologist, or radiation therapist in the state of Minnesota, you must enroll in and complete an approved radiographic training program from a radiology school that currently holds approval from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Only graduates from approved ARRT programs can take the ARRT exam, which is required for licensure by the state of Minnesota. You can contact the Minnesota Radiological Society at (651) 917-6249 to inquire about the licensure process.
