School of Radiologic Technology Overview
|Great News from the School of Radiologic Technology
The School of Radiography has just received the 2013 annual summary from the State of New Jersey regarding the performance of all sixteen (16) Schools of Radiologic Technology on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination.
In addition to exceeding the State and National averages for both mean scaled score and passing percentage, we are delighted to report that St. Francis is ranked #2 for highest mean scaled score among NJ’s sixteen (16) Programs, both hospital-based and college-based.
In 2013, the ARRT implemented a new scoring mechanism that resulted in lower mean scaled scores and passing percentages for many programs. Saint Francis is only 1 of 5 schools in NJ with a 100% pass rate in 2013. Our 10 year passing percentage for 1st time exam takers is 98.3%.
Three of the graduates from this class are per diem employees at St. Francis, so be sure to congratulate them if you see them. They are: Linda Marsala, RT(R), Marialys Walker, RT(R), and Amy Murphy, RT(R).
The Field of Radiologic Technology is a challenging and rewarding field that demands competent and compassionate radiographers. A Radiologic Technologist or Radiographer uses ionizing radiation to image various parts of the body for interpretation by a Radiologist. There are several ways in which to become a certified Radiologic Technologist. These include a 2-year hospital-based program offered at St. Francis Medical Center, 2-year Associates degree programs and 4-year Baccalaureate programs. If you are interested in a rewarding field that requires a highly motivated individual who is knowledgeable in Radiographic Procedures, Equipment Operation and Quality Control, Image Production and Evaluation, Radiation Protection, Patient Care and Education, then a career in the Radiologic Sciences may be for you.
