NIC radiography technology program to start this spring
North Idaho College’s new radiography technology program will begin Jan. 16, at the start of Spring Semester 2007.
The Idaho State Board of Education approved NIC’s proposal to initiate the program in August of last year. Debra Ortiz was hired last June to direct the program and curriculum for the program has been designed and approved.
The program is a five-semester associate’s degree program that prepares students for careers as radiologic technologists in settings such as hospitals, clinics and imaging centers.
The program has a selective admissions process and program applications will be accepted through Oct. 6. This is in addition to the regular college application. To be eligible for the program, applicants must have a high school diploma or GED with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 and must have completed course prerequisites as outlined with a minimum GPA of 2.0.
Applications are available in the NIC Admissions Office in Lee-Kildow Hall, in the Health Professions and Nursing Division Office in the Meyer Health and Sciences Building Room 257 or online. Click here

Several information sessions guiding prospective students through the admissions process will be held this fall. The sessions will be at 1 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 11 and at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 12 in the Meyer Health and Sciences Building Room 106. The sessions are free and open to anyone interested.
