Students who satisfactorily complete all program requirements will be awarded the Master of Science in Nuclear Medicine Technology from the University of Mississippi and will be eligible to take the examinations for certifications offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB).
Candidates for certification must have an overall grade point average (GPA) in UMMC coursework of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale.
Most states require licensure in order to practice; however, state licenses are usually based on the results of the ARRT and NMTCB certification examinations. Be advised that a felony conviction may affect a graduate's ability to sit for the ARRT and NMTCB certification examinations or attain state licensure.
For more information about the ARRT and NMTCB, please visit their websites at www.arrt.org and www.nmtcb.org.
