Degree Offered

Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging & Therapeutic Sciences
 

Length of Program

The program is 21 months in length, starting in August, and ending in May. The didactic component is composed of approximately 94 semester hours and complies with the American Society of Radiologic Technologists curriculum.

The Radiography Program consists of lectures, demonstrations, laboratory, and supervised clinical experiences. All didactic courses in the Radiography Program are taught online or have online components. Students gain clinical experience by rotating through one or more of the following facilities, depending on their placement on the Omaha or Kearney campus or the Columbus, North Platte, Norfolk locations:

  • Children’s Hospital & Medical Center
  • CHI Health Good Samaritan Hospital 
  • CHI Health Good Samaritan Medical Group
  • CHI Health Saint Francis Medical Center 
  • Columbus Community Hospital 
  • Faith Regional Health Services 
  • Family Practice of Grand Island
  • Family Medical Specialties 
  • Grand Island Regional Medical Center 
  • Great Plains Health  
  • Kearney Regional Medical Center 
  • Nebraska Medicine 
  • New West Sports Medicine 
  • Phelps Memorial Health Center 
  • Think Whole Person Healthcare 
  • Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center

The amount of time dedicated to the clinical environment depends upon the student's year in the program and semester of enrollment. Part of the clinical experience will involve evening/weekend rotation requirements. 

All students, male and female, will be offered the opportunity to participate in mammography rotations. The program will make every effort to place a male student in this rotation if requested; however, the program is not in the position to override clinical setting policies that may prohibit this. The program will not deny female students the opportunity to participate in mammography rotations if clinical settings are not available to provide the same opportunity to male students. The JRCERT position statement is available on the JRCERT Web site at www.jrcert.org.
