Reasons for students not completing the program were varied, but included personal and/or financial reasons, academic performance and disciplinary action. A little less than half of the students re-enrolled in the program and the remaining students explored other career paths. 

* The students of the January 2018 class are currently enrolled in the didactic phase of the program.

** The students of the August 2017 class are currently enrolled in the clinical phase of the program and/or are nearing program completion. 



Certification Results


The certification of NMI graduates for the previous five years (2012-2016) is 90 percent. The remaining graduates are eligible for national certification.

There are two national certification exams for nuclear medicine technologists. One is offered by The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). The NMI passing rate for first time examinees on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam for the previous five years (2012-2016) is 90 percent. The other national certification exam is offered by the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board. The NMI Passing rate for first time examinees for the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) exam for the last five years (2012-2016) is 89 percent.

Upon successful completion of the NMI program, all students are eligible to apply to the NMTCB to take the national certification exam in nuclear medicine technology. Students may or may not be eligible to take the ARRT certification exam, depending on patient load, degree achieved and clinical competencies completed. The ARRT has specific clinical competency requirements that may not be met by some clinical facilities, depending on patient load. Eligibility requirements for ARRT certification in nuclear medicine technology call for candidates to have earned an associate (or more advanced) degree from an accrediting agency recognized by ARRT.

The following tables display the University of Findlay's NMI graduate outcomes compiled from JRCNMT annual reports. The graduates may have taken one or both of the certification exams. All NMI graduates were eligible for one or both of the certification exams when they completed the NMI Program.
