TJC radiologic technology program marks 15 years of perfect pass rates

For the 15th consecutive year, graduates of the TJC Radiologic Technology Program have achieved a 100 percent passing rate on their American Registry of Radiologic Technologist national exams.

“That’s absolutely remarkable, and it shows the diligence of our students and the dedication of our highly skilled faculty,” said Paul Monagan, dean of the TJC School of Nursing & Health Sciences.

To add to that milestone, the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), the program’s accrediting body, recently awarded the TJC program with a three-year extension, up from the five it already had from the last self-study, site visit and program review.

In her letter to TJC President Dr. Mike Metke, committee chair Dr. Laura Aaron said, “The Joint Review Committee and staff congratulate you and the program faculty for achieving the maximum award of accreditation from the JRCERT and wish you continuing success in your efforts to provide a quality educational program.”

“This is news we always love to receive from our accreditors,” Monagan said. “We now have the maximum of eight years until our next scheduled site visit.”
