B.S. Nuclear Medicine Technology


Mission Statement

Consistent with the mission of the University, the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program at AdventHealth University (AHU) provides an environment where students pursue technical expertise in the field of nuclear medicine and computed tomography (CT) while respecting their own spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical development.

Program Description

The AHU Nuclear Medicine program is unique with both nuclear medicine and CT didactic and clinical training. The nuclear medicine technologist is a trained professional using radioactive pharmaceuticals in diagnostic, therapeutic, and investigative applications in the field of medicine. A nuclear medicine technologist employs small quantities of radioactive materials to help visualize and define tumors and malfunctioning organs and observe the physiology of cardiac, bone, liver, and other organ functions. Highly specialized imaging equipment and computers are subsequently used to generate body system images. 


The Nuclear Medicine Technology Student Handbook contains the policies of the program. By accepting enrollment as a Nuclear Medicine Technology student, each applicant agrees to abide by the regulations as outlined.

All students must present:

  • Proof of health insurance before entering the clinical environment and must maintain this insurance for the duration of the program.
  • Verification of tuberculosis screening. If the test is positive, refer to the Communicable Disease Policy in the Student Handbook for more information.
  • Updated immunization records including hepatitis B, MMR and Tetanus-Diphtheria.
  • Verification of varicella vaccination or show immunity (titer).
  • Evidence of physical examination within three months prior to beginning the professional program.
  • Verification of current certification in professional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from the American Heart Association, including infant, child, and adult CPR (certifications completed through on-line offerings are NOT acceptable).
  • Successful annual completion of mask FIT test, as administered by the program or obtained independently.

A background check is required for admission into the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program. The Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board, the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, and various state licensing agencies require disclosure of all misdemeanor and felony convictions. The results of this background check may impact eligibility for certification and licensure and should be completed in advance of beginning an educational program.

A professional program fee will be charged to cover the additional costs of the nuclear medicine technology program (see the Fee Schedule in the Financial Information section of the Academic Catalog).
