PROSPECTIVE DIAGNOSTIC MEDICAL SONOGRAPHY STUDENTS
For a more in-depth look into the Sonography Program, please visit our blackboard site at http://ccsnh.blackboard.com/ (username: nhtipss password: student)
A Professional Certificate in Diagnostic Medical Sonography is awarded to upon successful completion of the program.
The Diagnostic Medical Sonography program combines didactic and clinical study that enables the graduate to function in the medical community as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. Sonographers perform medical imaging using sophisticated ultrasound instrumentation. The program is four semesters of full-time study. Graduates find employment in hospitals and private clinics.
This program is financial aid eligible. To be eligible for federal financial aid, students must submit an official, final high school transcript, or the equivalent documentation that demonstrates high school completion, to the NHTI Admissions Office.
Specific Admission Requirements
For 2015 Admission
Preference will be given to applicants whose applications are complete and received by the NHTI Admissions Office no later than January 23, 2015 for Fall 2015 admission (with the exception of the interview).
NHTI has developed excellent practicum opportunities for our students to foster hands-on learning while simultaneously receiving credit. Nonetheless, the college's first priority must be to ensure that patients/clients/children/families are not placed in jeopardy by students during learning experiences. Therefore, students in internship, externship, practicum, service learning, and clinical experiences must demonstrate sufficient emotional stability to withstand the stresses, uncertainties and changing circumstances that characterize patient/client/child/family responsibilities. Furthermore, the student is expected to have the emotional stability required to exercise sound judgment, accept direction and guidance from a supervisor or faculty member, and establish rapport and maintain sensitive interpersonal relationships and confidentiality with employees, customers, and/or patients/clients/children and their families.
