A successful applicant for admission to the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certificate Program must meet the general requirements for admission to FHCHS (see General College Admission in the Admissions Information section) and:
Have a minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.70 from a regionally accredited institution.
Submit evidence of an Associate or a Baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited program in Medical Technology, Radiation Therapy, Radiography, Nursing, or Sonography. Courses in anatomy and physiology, physics, college algebra, statistics, medical terminology, oral and written communication, and general chemistry must be completed prior to admission. Applicants who have graduated from another allied health field or applicants who have a degree in one of the science areas should submit their credentials for evaluation regarding fulfillment of this requirement.
Submit two recommendations on FHCHS recommendation forms. Recommendations submitted at the time of initial application to the College will meet this requirement for new FHCHS students. Students who have attended FHCHS for at least one trimester must submit an additional recommendation from any FHCHS faculty member, adjunct professor, tutoring coordinator, or chaplain.
Each applicant is required to write an essay as part of the admission process. The essay should address each of the following: the applicant's reasons for wanting to enter the Nuclear Medicine Technology program; the applicant's reasons for wanting to pursue this course of study at FHCHS, a faith-based institution, and future goals; the applicant's characteristics and abilities that qualify him or her for this profession; the applicant's motivation for choosing a career in Nuclear Medicine Technology; and the applicant's perception of how nuclear medicine technologists contribute to healthcare and how an educational experience at FHCHS will enable the applicant to make future contributions. Essays should be typed using Times New Roman, 12-point black font, one to two pages in length, double spaced with one inch margins. Essays are reviewed for clarity, correct spelling and grammar, and content.
Admission into all professional programs is competitive. Each program has a maximum number of students that can be admitted each year. Students meeting the admission requirements for a given program qualify to be considered for admission to that program. However, due to the competitive nature of each program's admission process, meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee acceptance. Students may be given preferential consideration for admission to degree and certificate programs when they have successfully completed 12 college-level hours at FHCHS.
