North Central Missouri College’s first Radiologic Technology Cohort Graduates with 100% Pass Rate and Employment

North Central Missouri College’s first Radiologic Technology cohort of students passed their ARRT certification exam on the first attempt and are now registered as Radiologic Technologists, all of whom are successfully employed.

At North Central Missouri College, we love seeing our students succeed,” said Dr. Mitch Holder, NCMC Dean of Instruction. “These students have clearly demonstrated they are workforce-ready. I am particularly proud of these students for accomplishing the 100% pass rate as the first cohort graduating from North Central Missouri College. These students have been prepared by excellent instructors, Mallary Hann and Lorinda Ross, both of whom are dedicated radiologic technologists with high standards for patient care.”

Eight radiologic Technology students graduated and took the examination. Candidates must meet educational and ethics requirements to be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Radiography examination. The exam is a computer-based assessment that includes 230 questions. Students must receive a scaled score of at least 75 to pass and receive certification.

Congratulations to the NCMC Radiology program instructors, advisors, and recent graduates on a 100% American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) pass rate,” said Aileen Rost, NCMC Radiologic Technology Advisory Board Member and Mosaic Life Care Radiology Manager. “The high standards in patient care and the graduation of qualified individuals is a true asset to our community of patients and the Mosaic system. Mosaic’s decision to partner with NCMC was due to a strong history with the instructors and their outstanding outcomes. NCMC provides well-rounded, highly skilled radiologic technologists, which assists systems like Mosaic with quality technologists and also assists with a reduction of agency staff. Growing our own and staying close to home to serve are the partnership goals between NCMC and Mosaic. It is a great program with outstanding results; congratulations!

NCMC’s Radiologic Technology Program is a comprehensive two-year program in which students earn an Associate of Applied Science degree. Once accepted into the program, students undergo rigorous training, completing thirteen didactic and five clinical courses. The didactic courses encompass the areas of Patient Care, Safety, Image Production, and Radiographic Procedures. During clinical courses, students must demonstrate competence in 80 radiographic examinations, ensuring they are well-prepared for their future careers.
