Program description

Neurodiagnostic Technologist

The Neurodiagnostic Technologist program prepares you, under the supervision of a physician, to study and record electrical activity in the brain and nervous system for purposes of patient monitoring and supporting diagnoses in collaboration with the electroencephalographer. You’ll learn attributes and skills to obtain interpretable recordings of patients' nervous system function. You’ll become skilled in the following areas: communicating with patients, family and other healthcare personnel; taking and abstracting histories; applying adequate recording electrodes and using electroencephalography (EEG), evoked potential (EP), nerve conduction studies (NCS) and polysomnography (PSG) techniques; documenting the clinical condition of patients; and understanding and employing the optimal use of EEG, EP, NCS and PSG equipment, and data recording and documentation. This program includes a supervised practicum experience in a clinical setting while you are enrolled in the program.

Admission requirements

Teas Score Requirement

A TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) composite score of 58.7 or above is required for admission to the Pre-Associate Degree Nursing, Dental Hygiene, OTA , Medical Lab, Neurodiagnostic, and Vet Tech Programs.

Students must obtain a C grade in each required general education and core course. If a C grade is not obtained, you will be required to repeat the course.

Students will be required to electronically submit clinical documentation, which includes immunizations, when accepted into core courses.

There is an estimated wait time of two years AFTER your admit term to enter occupational specific courses; while waiting to start occupational specific courses, you may choose to take general education and elective courses required for your degree or diploma program.
