Ben Gomez, Zoe Nye and Baily Frey are no strangers to success. The three are recent graduates of NSCC’s radiographic imaging program and are now gainfully employed in the radiology field.
Gomez, the program’s 2012 outstanding student, works at Bryan Hospital, while Frey, the 2015 outstanding student, is employed at Paulding County Hospital. Nye works at Community Memorial Hospital in Hicksville, where she is giving back to the program by serving as a clinical instructor.
The radiographic imaging program is offered as a hybrid class, lab and distance learning partnership between Northwest State and Rhodes State College. Students in the program enjoy hands-on learning, as well as the flexibility that distance learning offers. In addition to saving time and travel expense, the flexible classroom schedule makes it possible for many students to work while pursuing their education.
Andrew Shappell, assistant professor and program coordinator at Rhodes State, noted that NSCC students who complete the radiographic imaging program have a 100% pass rate on both certification exams and employment.
Lori Robison, dean of Allied Health and Public Services at NSCC, added, “The shared partnership allows us to provide our students access to these occupations in high demand fields.”
