Radiology Schools in New Jersey

Radiologic technologists, in the simplest terms, do diagnostic imaging on patients, often through the use of X-rays, the Bureau of Labor statistics (BLS) reports, but also with ultrasound machines, magnetic resonance imaging and other tools. These healthcare professionals have many other responsibilities on the job, including taking care of and maintaining equipment, prepping patients and protecting them from unnecessary radiation exposure, and helping track patient information and maintaining records. Jobs in the radiology field include:

How to Become a Radiologic Technologist in New Jersey

The BLS reports that an associate degree is typically needed as the entry-level education for radiologic technology, though some professions may require a bachelor's degree or a postsecondary certificate instead. However, there are a variety of undergraduate programs available covering multiple levels of education, so prospective students should be able to find something that meets their needs in their home state. Coursework may vary by program, but subjects are likely to include:

  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Radiographic exposure
  • Radiographic procedures
  • Clinical health informatics

Students also generally need to complete clinical practicums during their studies, which can provide them with insight into the occupation, as well as hands-on experience working with patients. Students may want to complete a program accredited through the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JFCERT), which accredits radiologic technologist programs anywhere from 18 months to eight years.

This accreditation is important since many states require graduation from an accredited program as part of the process to becoming licensed or certified within that state. Often, students need to pass a state exam or a national one given through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). As the ARRT points out: "Certification is the initial recognition of an individual who satisfies certain standards within a profession." The ARRT also provides a list of state contacts, including phone numbers and websites, to obtain more information about state licensing requirements. In New Jersey, applicants seeking licensing also need to be at least 18 years of age, submit an application, graduate from a 24-month accredited program and complete the ARRT exam with a minimum passing rate of 75 percent.
