  • If you’re passionate about health care and helping others, a career as a Nuclear Medicine/PET Technologist may be the perfect fit for you! 

    Demand for bachelor’s prepared nuclear medicine technologists — those trained in preparing and administering radioactive chemical compounds and performing patient-imaging procedures — is high and employment opportunities can be found around the world in hospitals, outpatient clinics, and diagnostic laboratories, among other health care settings.

    We've partnered with one of the top medical centers in the Midwest.

    You’ll graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in nuclear medicine technology, having received a well-rounded Christian education grounded in the liberal arts, while at the same time having received intensive classroom and clinical training at a highly respected affiliate hospital leading to certification as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist (CNMT).

    Our affiliate medical center is Froedtert Hospital, located directly across the street from our campus. Froedtert is regularly recognized as one of the nation’s highest quality academic medical centers. In fact, since 2008, all of their nuclear medicine interns have passed the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) Exam, exceeding the national pass rate!
