The Society of Nuclear Medicine document titled "Entry Level Educational Requirements for Nuclear Medicine Technologists" (posted December 27, 2005), education leading to the baccalaureate degree will become the standard for entry level Nuclear Medicine Technologists. The Society of Nuclear Medicine, as well as the Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology supports the recommendation to require Bachelor of Science Degree programs in NMT beginning 2015.
Ferris State University now offers an opportunity for certified and/or licensed nuclear medicine technologists to complete a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology. Designed with the working technologist in mind, the program combines specialized nuclear medicine technology courses with general education requirements. Specialized courses include advanced instrumentation, advanced imaging, advanced cardiology, research methodology and radiopharmacology.
Upon completion of the program, the graduate will have the skills and knowledge to apply for positions beyond that of an entry-level technologist. There is a demand for well trained nuclear medicine technologists with Bachelor of Science degrees. Professional organizations within the field of Nuclear Medicine Technology are advocating for advanced degrees as entry-level for the profession. A bachelor of science degree may become the industry standard in the near future.
