Placement Radiologic Technology WelcomeThe primary mission of the Southeast Community College Radiologic Technology Program is to prepare entry level Radiologic Technologists committed to applying learned skills within the ethical, professional, and legal boundaries of a diverse community.You're a Good Fit for this program because . . . OverviewSCC’s Radiologic Technology program teaches the safe use of radiation to produce images of the human body for diagnostic purposes. Students are educated in the skills and knowledge required for critical thinking, problem-solving and effective communication in the radiology field. Students also learn to practice within the ethical, professional and legal boundaries required of this profession. The didactic portion is comprised of classes on SCC’s Lincoln Campus or online. The clinical component involves on-site education at pre-approved hospitals and clinics in the student’s vicinity. Program graduates become eligible to take the national examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and apply for state licensure.MissionThe primary mission of the Southeast Community College Radiologic Technology program is to prepare entry-level Radiologic Technologists committed to applying learned skills within the ethical, professional and legal boundaries of a diverse community.Program Goals & Student OutcomesProgram Effectiveness The Radiologic Technology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

Employment OutlookAccording to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of radiologic technologists is expected to increase by about 15 percent through 2016, faster than the average for all occupations. As the population grows and ages, there will be an increasing demand for diagnostic imaging. In addition to job growth, job openings also will arise from the need to replace technologists who leave the occupation. Radiologic technologists willing to relocate and who also are experienced in more than one diagnostic imaging procedure, such as CT, MR and mammography, will have the best employment opportunities as employers seek to control costs by using multi-credentialed employees. Locally, the job market has declined due to Nebraska’s current economy. This is expected to change as the economy strengthens and technologists retire. Recent SCC graduates report an average hourly wage of $16.80 per hour, with a high salary of $22.85 per hour.Starting TermsSummer Quarter (July), Winter Quarter (January).Program Self-Advising SheetRadiologic Technology-AASCurriculumPROGRAM CLASSESTake the following:RADT-1100 Intro to Diag ImagingRADT-1111 Diag Imaging ConceptsRADT-1112 Radiographic Procedures IRADT-1119 Clinical Education IRADT-1123 Radiographic Procedures IIRADT-1124 Diag Imaging TheoryRADT-1129 Clinical Education IIRADT-1133 Radiographic Procedures IIIRADT-1134 Radiation BiologyRADT-1139 Clinical Education IIIRADT-1143 Radiographic Procedures IVRADT-1147 Specialized ImagingRADT-1149 Clinical Education IVRADT-2253 CT ImagingRADT-2259 Clinical Education VRADT-2265 PathophysiologyRADT-2269 Clinical Education VIRADT-2276 Diagnostic Imaging ApplicationsRADT-2279 Clinical Education VIIRADT-2288 Senior SeminarRADT-2289 Clinical Education VIIIRADT-2254 Adv Patient Care MngmentPROGRAM CLASSES AND PREREQSTAKE BIOS-1140,BIOS-2130;BIOS-1140 Human AnatomyBIOS-2130 Human PhysiologyTake 1 Chemistry and 1 Physics class with a labTake MATH-1100 OR MATH-1150;MATH-1100 Intermediate AlgebraMATH-1150 College AlgebraTAKE MEDA-1101;MEDA-1101 Basic Medical Terminology 1TAKE MEDA-1406;MEDA-1406 Basic PharmacologyTAKE ENGL-1010;ENGL-1010 Composition ITake SPCH-1090 OR SPCH-1110 OR SPCH-2810;SPCH-1090 Fund of Human CommunicationsSPCH-1110 Public SpeakingSPCH-2810 Business & Professional CommunTake SOCI-1010SOCI-1010 Introduction to SociologyProgram RequirementsProgram PrerequisitesThe program has identified specific General Education and prerequisite courses that must be completed with a minimum grade of 75% (C+) prior to entry into the program.Required courses may be earned at SCC or any college as long as they meet the approval of SCC transfer requirements and program curriculum.Program Requirements Current CPR certification by the American Heart Association for Health Care ProvidersReview of Careers in Radiology WebsiteJob Shadowing Successful completion of a Criminal Background Check including the Nebraska adult and child abuse registries (CBC executed by SCC).Program AdmissionStudents may apply to the program after they begin their last term of prerequisites.Submit to Admissions:Completed Self-Advising Sheet with prerequisites trackedNew application for Radiologic Technology programCompleted Health StatementWebsite and Job Shadowing documentsTranscripts as needed (check with Admissions)Students will be placed on the appropriate waiting list and contacted with an anticipated start date upon successful completion of the admission process.

Depending on the clinical site, students are admitted in July and/or January. The program is offered via the Lincoln track (clinical performed in Lincoln; didactic courses offered in classroom or Web-based) OR the Distance track (clinical performed outside Lincoln; didactic courses offered Web-based). Clinical - Students will use the knowledge learned in the didactic courses, along with skills acquired in lab, to give care to patients or clients at a health care facility. Clinical rotations may include hospitals, rural rotations, clinics, and rehabilitation institutions. Students will gain experience in radiology, surgery and emergency care interacting with a range of patients from ambulatory to critically ill to trauma. The majority of clinical hours will be daytime, but there are evening and weekend rotations.
