The Radiologic Technology Program is part of the Health Sciences Division at Brookdale Community College. Other fields of study in this division include: Nursing, Sonography, Respiratory Therapy and Dental.
The Radiologic Technology Program will lead to an Associate Degree in Applied Science and is designed for immediate employment upon graduation. However, many students choose to continue in a bachelor’s degree program at another institution. Some of the schools where BCC graduates have enrolled include Rutger’s University, Monmouth University, Hahnemann University, Thomas Jefferson University, Georgian Court College, Johns Hopkins University, and Seton Hall University.
College laboratory and clinical laboratory experiences are integrated into the curriculum so that BCC Radiologic Technology students are prepared at an entry level in their field. Students have the opportunity to practice skills in the laboratory and then apply these skills to patient care in a hospital setting.
Students enrolling in this program must meet specific admissions requirements in addition to applying to the college. The admissions requirements are outlined in the admissions packet.
Call and make an appointment at 732-224-2555 to meet with a science counselor to discuss general education coursework and transferability of courses taken at other institutions before registering for any general education courses.
Health clearance from an physician or a nurse practitioner is required before the student can participate in clinical laboratory experiences. Students must meet the technical requirements necessary to perform the professional duties of a radiologic technologists.
Criminal History Background Checks
Clinical agencies mandate criminal history checks for all individuals engaged in patient care, and all students must undergo criminal history background checks. These checks are conducted by an external vendor, and the information is sent to the College and to clinical agencies. Agency personnel will evaluate the information they receive and, in their sole discretion, make the final determination as to each student’s ability to continue to engage in patient care in their agency. If a student is denied clinical placement by any clinical agency due to criminal history information, that student will be dropped from the program.
Note: Graduates are eligible to sit for licensing or national certification examinations. Brookdale Community College holds regional accreditation by the Middle Sates Higher Education Commision. The Radiologic Technology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committeee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
