Nuclear Medicine Technology (A.A.S.)


Nuclear Medicine is the use of radioactive materials and sophisticated electronic scanning equipment to diagnose and treat certain suspected or known disorders of the human body. The three most common procedures are organ imaging, laboratory analysis and therapeutic administration.

Students enrolled in the 22-month Nuclear Medicine Technology (NMT) program spend the first year building a core of liberal arts and science courses and basic concepts of NMT. The second year is spent primarily in clinical training, with additional instructional courses at the College.

NMT students must complete the minimum number of required hours of clinical instruction, which are scheduled throughout the program in collaboration with clinical affiliates. Clinical hours occur during all College sessions, including Interterm.

Program Goals

Upon successful completion of the NMT program requirements, graduates are eligible to apply for board certification through national certifying agencies: The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board.


NMT is a selective admissions program. Students must be accepted to the program before registering for any NMT courses.

Rowan College requires all students accepted into the NMT program to complete a criminal history background check (CHBC), a mandatory requirement of clinical agencies to engage in patient care. Students denied the opportunity to participate in the clinical agency as a result of the CHBC will be dismissed from the NMT program.
