Program prepares graduates for state licensure exam and high-demand careers as radiologic technologists

January 25, 2021

The Blinn College District Radiologic Technology Program encourages individuals interested in becoming radiologic technologists to apply for admission to the Fall 2021 cohort.

“The demand for skilled radiologic technologists can be measured by our consistent 100% job placement rate,” Program Director Tina Kocurek said. “Through our dedicated faculty and innovative curriculum, we prepare graduates to make valuable contributions to the healthcare profession and we welcome prospective students to learn more about our program.”

Radiologic technologists make up the third-largest group of healthcare professionals in the nation – surpassed in number only by physicians and nurses. Radiologic technologists use specialized medical equipment to create images of patients’ bodies to help doctors to diagnose and treat diseases and injuries.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, radiologic technologists earn a median salary of $62,280 per year and employment is projected to grow 7% between 2019 and 2029, creating 16,800 new jobs.

Blinn’s two-year Radiologic Technology Program is based at the RELLIS Academic Alliance Complex at the RELLIS Campus in Bryan, where students gain hands-on skills utilizing the facility’s 16,000-square-foot simulation laboratories. The nationally accredited program prepares students for careers as entry-level radiologic technologists through extensive training in patient care and safety, anatomy and physiology, image production, equipment operation, radiation protection, and radiographic procedures. The program’s curriculum is designed to transfer graduates seamlessly into institutions of higher learning to continue studies beyond an Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply for state licensure and will be prepared to complete the credentialing examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Program graduates have a 95% first-attempt pass rate on the ARRT examination and a 100% job placement rate over the past five years.
