Graduate Achievement Data

Graduate Achievement Data from JRCNMT-Accredited Programs

The purpose of providing the graduate achievement data of accredited nuclear medicine technology programs is to make this information readily available to the public, in a consistent format for all programs. The data is collected and reported by programs following specific guidelines identified by the JRCNMT that are detailed below. The data is reviewed and accepted by the JRCNMT before publication. 

The JRCNMT has completed verification of achievement data from the 2017 Annual Report process. This data is self-reported by nuclear medicine technology programs to the JRCNMT and reflects aggregate data from each program for the five-year period being reported.  The data collected and posted in 2018 is for graduates from 2013 through 2017.

Definitions

Refer to the definitions below for more information regarding the abbreviations and information displayed in the linked graduate achievement report.

Graduation Rate

Defined as the number of students formally enrolled in a nuclear medicine technology program* who graduated from the program during the designated time period after completing all programmatic and graduation requirements, calculated as a percentage of the total number of students initially enrolled in the class.

*Programmatic enrollment begins when a student enrolls in the first nuclear medicine technology course (non-survey, non-prerequisite) that is available only to students matriculated in the nuclear medicine technology program. 

ARRT Success

This information is reported to the JRCNMT by submission of an official examinee report for the indicated time period obtained from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Success is defined as the pass rate for all first-time examinees who graduated during the designated survey time period.

Pass rate is the number of first-time examinees that pass the exam calculated as the percentage of the total number of first-time examinees during the designated time period.

NMTCB Success

This information is reported to the JRCNMT by submission of an official examinee report for the indicated time period obtained from the Nuclear Medicine Technologist Certification Board (NMTCB). Success is defined as the pass rate for all first-time examinees who graduated during the designated survey time period. Pass rate is the number of first-time examinees that pass the exam calculated as the percentage of the total number of first-time examinees during the designated time period. 

Job Placement

Job placement indicates graduate employment status at six months post-graduation from a nuclear medicine technology program. The percentage on the data table is the percentage of total graduates that are working as a nuclear medicine technologist in a full-time, part-time or per-diem position at six months post-graduation. 

All non-public information generated or received by the JRCNMT that relates to a program’s accreditation status, including but not limited to accreditation letters, survey reports and progress reports, is confidential and will not be released unless authorized by the program or required by law.
