Radiologic technologists who are willing to relocate and who also are experienced in more than one diagnostic imaging procedure – such as CT, MR, and mammography – will have the best employment opportunities as employers seek to control costs by using multi-credentialed employees. Radiographers may specialize in more complex imaging procedures including:
Most full-time radiologic technologists work about 40 hours a week. They may, however, have evening, weekend, or on-call hours. Opportunities for part-time and shift work also are available.
Although hospitals will remain the principal employer of radiologic technologists, a number of new jobs will be found in offices of physicians and diagnostic imaging centers. Health facilities such as these are expected to grow through 2018, because of the shift toward outpatient care, encouraged by third-party payers and made possible by technological advances that permit more procedures to be performed outside the hospital. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of radiologic technologists is expected to increase by about 28% from 2010 to 2020, which is faster than the average for all occupations.
The information below reflects aggregated data from all of the Herzing University campuses that have students enrolled in the specified program in the specified time period. The information does not reflect data regarding individual campuses unless only one campus had students to report. The reporting period used to obtain this data was 7/1/2012-6/30/2013. If there were less than 10 graduates in a program, median loan debt and on-time completion data were not disclosed for that program to protect the privacy of those students. Tuition and length may vary by campus location. Ranges could not be input for tuition and length, therefore tuition and length reported are the highest tuition rates and longest program length to encompass all campuses.
