X-rays are important tools physicians use when they are diagnosing an injury or illness.
X-ray technology has become more complex in recent years. All states require formal training for x-ray operators to ensure that x-ray services are properly conducted and follow essential radiation safety guidelines.
Anthem Career College–Nashville offers a Limited Scope X-Ray Operator Associate of Applied Science degree that prepares students for this career. Students in this program take several anatomy courses and clinical courses that include positioning and patient care. They are taught clinical skills that include venipuncture, injections and lab services.
Associate degree candidates also take additional general education courses that help them develop personal and management skills that can support career advancement. These courses include written and oral communications—including communications for healthcare professionals— and psychology.
After successfully completing coursework, students are placed in externships in healthcare facilities where they are closely supervised as they practice their skills in real-world settings.
Graduates are prepared to compete for specific positions as limited scope x-ray operators, practical technologists in radiology, basic x-ray machine operators, limited scope operators, practical certified radiology operators, or x-ray operators.
