Specific Admission Requirements
For Fall 2015 Admission
Preference will be given to applicants whose applications are complete and received by the NHTI Admissions Office no later than March 13, 2015 (with the exception of the interview) for Fall 2015 admission.
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.
Health, Character and Technical Requirements
The student must have sufficient strength and motor coordination required to perform the following physical activities:
In addition, the student must have:
The mission of the radiation therapy program is to educate and produce highly qualified radiation therapists through an objective based didactic education and competency based clinical education. Student growth and professional development will be instilled through the community college system and atmosphere in conjunction with the Institute’s Mission Statement.
