Nuclear Medicine Technology Admission Requirements

To be considered for admission to the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program, applicants must be admitted to
Mercy College and meet the criteria listed below. Admission to the College does not
guarantee admission to a professional program.

  1. Have earned a grade of “C” (not “C-”) or above in each of the following college-level courses: Algebra (or higher level math), Anatomy (with lab), general Chemistry (with lab), English, Physics, and Physiology (with lab).

  2. Have earned a grade of “C” (not “C-“) or higher in each of the following college-level courses: a
    Humanities course, a Social Science course, an Oral Communication course and a Medical Terminology
    course. Applicants who have not met this requirement may take these courses concurrently with the program courses. Satisfactory completion of these courses will be a graduation requirement.

  3. Be certified/licensed in a related health care field (a minimum of two years education in an accredited
    educational program is required) such as: radiologic technology, medical technology, or nursing, with a
    cumulative GPA of 2.7 or higher on a 4.0 scale. Applicants holding a baccalaureate degree may meet
    admission requirements if the applicant has a strong science background.

  4. Hold current registration, in good standing, with the appropriate certifying board(s), if applicable.

  5. Complete eight hours of observation in a nuclear medicine department.

  6. Submit two letters of recommendation for admission to the program.

  7. Complete a successful interview with the Program Selection Committee. This interview is scheduled when all other admission requirements have been met.

Admission into this program is on a competitive basis. Meeting the minimum criteria does not guarantee admission
into this program. Admission into Mercy College also does not guarantee admission into this program. Early
application is encouraged. After the enrollment class is full, students qualified for admission will be placed on an
alternate list. Students from the alternate list will be added to the fall enrollment class on a space available basis.
Students who are not admitted into the program may re-apply for the following year.
