Why Attend The ISU Radiographic Science Program
• The program was the first in the state and one of the first in the nation to offer Digital Radiography (DR). It is "State of the Art".
• Students in the program complete 1500 hours of clinical experience which prepares them for real world experiences in Imaging.
• The program is programmatically accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
•Classroom sizes are small averaging 18-20 students selected each year. Labs also are small, as few as 5 students per lab. This allows 1 on 1 instruction. Students attend ISU for this reason.
• Students can complete Computed Tomography (CT) competencies while in the program. This is not typical of most radiography programs.
• For the past 5 years the national exam pass rate administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) is 97% passing on the 1st attempt and 100% passing on the 2nd attempt.
The Mission of the Radiographic Science Program is to provide students with both the academic and technical foundations to competently and safely perform Radiologic procedures, to prepare qualified imaging technologists who will ethically respond to the needs of patients with technical competence and compassion, and to assume a vital professional role as a medical team member.
• Prepare leaders in radiography for today and tomorrow by providing baccalaureate education.
• Academics – promoting excellence in all academic endeavors.
• Knowledge – recognizing the significance of new knowledge in a profession that is predisposed to change while maintaining traditional values and emphasizing the needs of the patient.
• Dedication – helping meet the statewide and regional needs by providing access to quality education to prospective students.
• Community – meeting the needs of the community in the health care setting by providing competent, qualified, technologists who are eligible upon graduation to sit for the national certification examination in radiography sponsored by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
