Once a student graduates from WellSpan’s Radiography Program, he or she is eligible to work as an entry-level radiographer. In order for a graduate to become a registered radiologic technologist, they must successfully pass the National Registry Examination offered through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (www.arrt.org). New graduates are encouraged to take the registry examination shortly after program completion. Graduates must ensure they meet all ARRT examination requirements or risk being ineligible for the exam.
Please note: Beginning January 1, 2015, to be eligible to sit for the National Registry Examination offered through the ARRT, the participant will need to have an associate, baccalaureate, or graduate degree from an institution accredited by a mechanism acceptable to the ARRT.
For this reason, Wellspan’s Radiography Program is proud to introduce a Bachelor of Science degree in Radiography through an articulation agreement with York College. Students would complete two years of academic preparation through York College followed by WellSpan’s twenty-three month program. Acceptance of the student into WellSpan’s Radiography Program is at the discretion of the Program’s Admission Committee.
Please contact Elizabeth Hodgson, York College radiography program coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org, 717.815.1530) or visit the York College website (www.ycp.edu, undergraduate/radiography) for more information regarding the course curriculum and schedule.
Please note: Individuals who have been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor may have violated the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists Rules and Ethics, and may be considered ineligible to sit for the national board examinations. Those with questions regarding eligibility are encouraged to submit a pre-application form to the ARRT before entering an approved educational program. This form may also be submitted after an individual has been enrolled.
Requests for pre-application forms must be requested through the ARRT by calling (610)-687-0048.
