Feb. 17, 2016

Anyone interested in learning more about a career in Radiography is invited to attend an information session from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 1, in the University Transfer Center Fireside Room on the Nicolet College Campus.

During the free event, participants will hear from Nicolet faculty and staff who have extensive experience working in the field about what radiographers do on a day-to-day basis. Students currently in the Radiography program will also be on hand to share their perspective.

radiography“As with any academic program, it’s important that it be the right fit for a student,” said Nicolet Dean of Health Occupations Lenore Blemke. “This event will be a great way for anyone interested in the field as a career to learn more about it to see if it is really right for them.”

Nicolet shares the two-year associate degree program with Lakeshore Technical College near Manitowoc. Some classes are held in traditional classrooms on the Nicolet Campus and others over an interactive television (ITV) network at Nicolet. Students also spend time training at local clinical sites.

In general, radiographers work with patients to get necessary diagnostic images. Those working in the field are typically detail-oriented, interested in anatomy and physiology, able to work under pressure, and like to work with technology and people.

Individuals graduating in 2014 from a Wisconsin technical college Radiography program reported a median salary of $42,221 six months after graduation.

Nicolet staff will also be on hand at the event to explain the application and admissions process and also talk about the course work necessary to graduate from the program.
