Proposed Academic Program Inventory Title:  
A.A.S. Degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology


Proposed Academic Program Inventory Title including concentrations: (optional)

CIP Code:51.0905


SOC Code/s:
SOC 1:29-2033
SOC 2:
SOC 3:


Program Description:


Program Outcomes:


Concentrations are optional but if applicable please list name of the concentration and a description of the concentration and concentration outcomes. 


Technical Certificates:
Each certificate should be identified with a title, program description, and outcomes (see above).  
Nuclear Medicine Technology Certificate


CIP Code:
Please assign CIP codes that are appropriate for degree and/or certificates.  In addition, identify a specific CIP Code for all concentrations.  


Professional Accrediting Body:

Joint Review Committee on Education Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRCNMT)


State Agency/Entity Oversight:



Applicable Certification/License or Industry-recognized Certificates to Be Awarded: If applicable

(Specify whether the credential is awarded as a component of the degree/certificate or if it is optional, meaning that the student is prepared and eligible to take the test for the credential. Also, each course summary form should identify whether the course contributes to the opportunity to earn a specific credential.)


The student is prepared and eligible to take the NMTCB and the ARRT(N) upon graduation.


Articulation with Tennessee Colleges of Applied Technology (TCAT): (Which courses are projected to align with TCAT programs?)



Concentration(s) within the A.A.S. in Nuclear Medicine


Concentration Description:

• Course 1:

• Course 2:

• Course 3:


(Note:  A concentration description with a minimum of 9 SCH is required for EACH concentration recommended by the Statewide Curriculum Committee.  The institution will also be required to specify a minimum or 6 additional SCH to define the concentration.  In the future, it is possible that a concentration will require a minimum of 12 defined SCH required as the “concentration core” and 6 additional SCH defined by the institution.  This is not currently required.  Currently a concentration is defined as a minimum of 15 SCH, but this may increase to 18 SCH.)


Specializations or special career paths can be defined by the institution without having to establish a formal concentration that appears on the Academic Program Inventory.  However, the only way to identify these specializations is to manually type it into “comments” for the transcript.  


Conversations with some industry representatives indicate that they rely on the students resume to identify any specializations or special skills.  As long as the transcript had courses to support that position there should be no concern.  It is rare that an employer would request a transcript from an A.A.S. graduate.
