The Nuclear Medicine Technology B.S.R.S. degree program is a 2+2 program. Freshmen and sophomore courses are completed at the college of choice, after which the applicant applies to the Augusta University Nuclear Medicine Technology program for completion of the professional NMT component during the junior and senior years. This program is sequenced in five consecutive semesters after completion of prerequisite coursework.
Minimum math/science AND overall GPA to be considered for the program is 2.5
Application deadline is May 1.
The NMT Bridge programs are designed for professionals with a current CNMT or ARRT(N) certification or military nuclear medicine training who seek to enhance their education from an associate to bachelor's degree level. After completing required core pre-requisite coursework, the qualifying individual will be given 30 credit hours toward the B.S.R.S. degree. Course work contains advanced education and clinical experience in PET, CT, nuclear cardiology, health care management, and medical research. A flexible format allows students to continue working with limited travel requirements to campus. The Bridge Programs are completed in three to five semesters depending on previous NMT professional coursework.
NOTE: All bridge program students must meet the Georgia Board of Regents requirements for 60 credit hours of general education prerequisites as described on the prospective student prerequisite page
