School of Radiologic Technology Program Effectiveness & Outcomes

After completing the Saint Luke’s School of Radiologic Technology program, you will be able to:

  • Accurately integrate knowledge of anatomy, positioning, and radiographic techniques to demonstrate structures on an image or radiograph.
  • Apply appropriate principles of radiation protection for patient, self, and others.
  • Determine exposure factors to achieve optimum technical factors with a minimum of radiation exposure to the patient.
  • Examine images for the purpose of evaluating technique, patient positioning, and other pertinent technical qualities.
  • Provide patient care essential to radiologic procedures by demonstrating knowledge and competency in assessment, critical thinking, and delivery of an entry-level skill set.
  • Exercise discretion and judgment in the performance of medical imaging procedures within the scope of practice of a radiographer.
  • Recognize emergency patient conditions and initiate lifesaving first aid.
  • Integrate knowledge from didactic and clinical experiences as a basis for making professional decisions.

Program Outcomes

The following is the most current program effectiveness data. Our programmatic accreditation agency, the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), defines and publishes this information. The information can be found directly on the JRCERT website.

Credentialing examination pass rate

The number of students who pass, on the first attempt, the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination, or an unrestricted state licensing examination, compared with the number of graduates who take the examination within six months of graduation. The five-year average benchmark established by the JRCERT is 75%.

ARRT credentialing exam pass rate on first attempt:

  • Year 1 – 2016
    • 10 passed ARRT exam/10 took ARRT exam (100%)
  • Year 2 – 2017
    • 8/9 (89%)
  • Year 3 – 2018
    • 7/7 (100%)
  • Year 4 – 2019
    • 10/10 (100%)
  • Year 5 – 2020
    • 10/10 (100%)

Over a five-year average, 45 of the 46 (98%) students taking the ARRT credentialing exam passed on the first attempt.

Job placement

The number of graduates employed in the radiologic sciences compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences within twelve months of graduating. The five-year average benchmark established by the JRCERT is 75%.

  • Year 1 – 2016
    • 10 employed/10 graduated (100%)
  • Year 2 – 2017
    • 9/9 (100%)
  • Year 3 – 2018
    • 7/7 (100%)
  • Year 4 – 2019
    • 10/10 (100%)
  • Year 5 – 2020
    • 10/10 (100%)

Over a five-year average, 46 of the 46 (100%) graduates had jobs within 12 months.

Program completion rate

The number of students who complete the program within the stated program length. The annual benchmark established by the program is 80%.

  • Year 1 – 2020
    • 10 graduated program/10 started program (100%)

Over a one-year average, 10 of the 10 (100%) students graduated after starting the program.
