A radiologic technician career can be a very rewarding and well-paying career. It is also not a difficult career to get into either. This article will examine the education requirements, average salary, and schools that an individual can go to for training in this profession.

Conclusion

NJ has a higher cost-of-living than some other places, so this should be taken into account when considering this area for your radiology career. Furthermore, consider that you may have a commute to work every day, every hour. There are many commuters in NJ. Keep these things in mind when planning your career.
There are at least three competent schools for X-ray technicians, including the following: 1. Bergen Community College This community college is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Radiology Technology. The advantage of this college is that they have a board of examiners that will fully review each student and fully prepare them for each certification of any governing body. They offer professional development that is top notch as well. www.bergen.edu/pages1/pages/bergenhomenew.aspx 2. St. Francis Medical Center This school is first of all very small and is a private, non- profit school. One advantage to this type is that it specializes in medical subjects and medical careers and so that students might have a propensity to learn more. Another advantage would be that because the student body is small they will have more of a sense of camaraderie. One disadvantage would also be the small size however, and you might have to already be an employee for it to work. www.stfrancismedical.org/Education/School-of-Radiologic- Technology.aspx 3. St. Joseph's Medical Center St. Joseph's is also the type of college that is connected to a hospital. This is a private, not-for-profit type of school and is very similar to the second school on this list. www.saintjosephs.org/radiology_ataglance
