Radiography students from the Class of 2014 at County College of Morris (CCM) recently obtained a 100-percent pass rate on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) exam.
This is the fifth time since the program began at CCM in 1999 that radiography students have gained a 100-percent pass rate. The CCM classes of 2003, 2006, 2010 and 2012 also gained a perfect pass rate. The Class of 2014 consisted of 25 students.
“I’m very proud of our students,” said Denise Vill’Neuve, chair of the Allied Health Department at CCM. “They work very hard. This is not an easy program and many of the students have other commitments they also need to take care of outside of school.”
Radiologic technologists work throughout the healthcare setting to create medical images to aid radiologists and other doctors with diagnosing and treating medical problems.
Students at CCM earn an Associate in Applied Science degree, which prepares them for entry-level diagnostic radiologic technologist position. After meeting their educational requirements, candidates for radiography certification must pass the ARRT exam, which assesses their knowledge, cognitive skills and ability to perform the tasks typically required of staff technologists working in entry-level positions.
