Radiologic Technology

  • Welcome

    The field of radiology is exciting and is often considered part science, part art.  Science because of the basic scientific principals involved in obtaining the radiographic image; art because each patient and situation is unique and requires its own distinctive way of interaction.  It is the variety in the work that makes radiology interesting.

    Overview

    SCC’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.

    Employment Outlook

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of radiologic technologists is expected to grow 21 percent through 2022, 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 $19.30 per hour.
