West Windsor, N.J. – The Radiography program at Mercer County Community College (MCCC) has earned a continuation of its eight-year accreditation from the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology. The maintenance of this key accreditation comes after members of the MCCC Radiography faculty submitted a comprehensive interim report detailing compliance with the required national standards since the program’s last reaccreditation in 2009.
The passing percentage among MCCC’s first-time examinees on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists national certification exam continues to be stellar, with 90 percent passing in 2014. The five-year pass average is 97 percent. According to Program Coordinator Sandra Kerr, M.A., R.T., the pass rate of MCCC graduates has consistently met or exceeded national and New Jersey averages.
Kerr says that graduates of the program are in high demand and that job placements have been nothing short of stellar. “The job placement rate for the Class of 2013 [the latest for which data is available] was 100 percent," Kerr reports. "Our graduates are employed throughout the tri-state area in hospitals, imaging centers, urgent care centers and physician offices.”
