Radiologic Technology

Radiologic Technology is a cooperative program designed with the Shore Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology (SMCSRT). The program meets the needs of those students desiring certification and employment in the community as a Radiologic Technologist. The American Registry for Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) requires students on this career path to have a minimum of an associate degree from an accredited institution for eligibility to take the ARRT certification examination.

The program, accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technologists (JRCERT) and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of X-ray Compliance (NJDEP), is completed in two phases. The pre-professional phase of the program, which includes courses in general education, mathematics, and science, is completed at Atlantic Cape. The professional phase of the program, which includes the radiologic technology courses and clinical experiences, is completed at Shore Medical Center. Upon having completed the required 68 college credits and receiving a certificate of all program requirements from SMCSRT, Atlantic Cape will grant an Associate in Applied Science degree. 

Admission to the professional phase of the program requires completion of the prerequisite courses: ENGL101, MATH122 or MATH150, BIOL220 and BIOL221. All four prerequisite courses must be completed with a grade of C or better and have a minimum GPA of 3.0. Also required is completion of the ATI TEAS exam with a score of 58.7 or greater.

  • Demonstrate effective communication skills, problem solving and critical thinking as part of a healthcare team;
