    I’m interested in applying for your school. However, I’m using the post-911 GI bill to pay, does this school support this???

    V/R,
    Harmon

    • dbernard says:

      Yes, we do support the post-911 GI bill. You can find out more about our financial aid options here. Starr Bender is the contact for VA and GI Bill benefits, and can be emailed at starr.bender[at]fhchs.edu.

  2. I have specialization in a bachelor’s degree in Physics and one year specialization in Radiologic Protection and Nuclear Safety, so my question is – may I apply for this program?

    • dbernard says:

      To be eligible for our BS in RS program, you must possess an associate degree in Radiography, Radiologic Technology, Radiologic Sciences or Nuclear Medicine Technology from a regionally-accredited institution, or a JRCERT accredited program and hold current registration by American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) or the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB). You can read more about our admissions requirements here or contact us at 1-888-768-6276.

  3. Amanda says:

    In the previous question, you answered that to be eligible for the BS in RS program, you must possess an associate degree. Is it the same for the BS in DMS program? are you required to already have an associate degree in the field?

    • dbernard says:

      Our BS in DMS program does not require that you have an Associate’s degree, however you must be certified in Sonography by one of the three credentialing organizations (ARDMS, ARRT, or CCI). You can learn more about the requirement for the BS in DMS degree here. Or you may call 1-888-768-6276 to speak with a Distance Enrollment Specialist about your specific qualifications.

  4. Morgan says:

    I am interested in getting my degree in sonography, I currently have a EKG tech degree. Can I go straight to school even though I am not currently a sonographer? What classes do I need to take in order to go to the school.. Thanks

    • dbernard says:

      In order to qualify for our online BS in DMS degree, you do have to be a registered sonographer. If you are interested in taking the necessary classes to become registered, you can reach out to the Florida Hospital College campus by visting http://www.fhchs.edu or calling (407) 303-7742.

  5. Angela says:

    How can this RS degree be completed 100% distance with no clinical hours?

    • dbernard says:

      Since the degree requires that one is already registered with the ARRT or NMTCB, a student would have already completed their clinical hours in getting their AS degree or certification. The Bachelor’s degree concentrates on high-level theory and technique, emerging technologies, and management skills.

  6. iam not able to contact you.

  7. deivis says:

    To be accepted in the BSRS program, do i have to be a graduate from an ARRT AND JRCERT accredited program, or it can be from either or?

    Thank You

    • dbernard says:

      The program you graduated from must be JRCERT accredited, however you must be registered with the ARRT or NMTCB to qualify for our program. If you would like more detailed information about whether or not you might qualify for our program, you can call 1-888-768-6276 and press 2 when prompted.

  8. Cole says:

    I have an AS degree in Radiologic Technology, 1973, but retired in the early ’90′s. I do not have a current registration with the ARRT, but would like to reenter the profession with a BS degree. Can this program help someone like me get recertified as a Rad Tech who has not been working in the field for over 20 yrs?

    • dbernard says:

      Unfortunately, our program will not help you become re-certified as a Rad Tech. In order to enter the program, we require that all of our students currently be registered with the ARRT in Radiography. You can contact the ARRT directly at 651-687-0048 x8560 and they will be able to let you know what you need to do to be eligible to sit for the exam.

  9. Katie says:

    If I already graduated from an accredited ECHO program, will you accept those credits. Also if I have credits from a community college will you accept those credits too?

    • dbernard says:

      We do accept transfer credits from other regionally accredited programs. In order to determine exactly how many credits would transfer, an official transfer credit evaluation would need to be completed. You can contact us at 1-888-768-6276 to get the process started.

  13. Nancy says:

    Do I have to do clinicals in the RN to BSN program?

    • dbernard says:

      There is no clinical requirement in the RN to BSN program, as we recognize that you have already completed clinicals to become an RN. There is a practicum component where you apply what you’ve learned to your current work setting. You can speak with a Distance Enrollment Specialist in more detail by calling 1-888-768-6276.

  14. Rachel says:

    If you do the dms program online..where do you do your clinicals?

    • dbernard says:

      Since this is an online completion degree, meaning you already have to be registered in sonography to be eligible for our program, there is no clinical component to our curriculum. Clinicals would have already been completed in a certificate, diploma or associate’s program.

  15. Victoria says:

    I am currently a student at Piedmont Technical College in South Carolina. I am going for my associates in Radiologic Technology, but I am very interested in furthering my education to become a Radiologist Assistant. I know that I will need to gain a Master’s degree to even be eligible for this career, but I am curious as to what steps I could take at this institution to reach my goals. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • dbernard says:

We would love to speak with you directly about your career goals and how the BS in Radiologic Sciences might fit into your plan, based on your specific qualifications and experience.

  18. Victoria says:

  32. Jeff Taber, MD says:

    To whom this concerns:

    I stumbled across your website…and it got me to thinking.

    I am a rural family physician who’s done OB / GYN / limited vascular ultrasound for 23 years. I have newer digital Philip’s equipment and am able to help many.

    My questions, upon seeing your site, is….does your program offer anything I might be interested in, as a physician already involved? Any education / certification / etc…that I might consider? Perhaps not…and then, maybe…?

    Thanks,

    JT

    • dbernard says:

      Thank you for your interest in Florida Hospital College. Our online sonography program was developed for associate’s or diploma-level practicing sonographers to complete their Bachelor’s degree for purposes of moving on to management or teaching positions. As this program does not lead to additional certifications, and you are already an MD, it seems that restarting at the Bachelor’s level may not be a good fit for you.

    I would have to take out a loan and I am horribly unemployed as there are NO radiography jobs in San Diego. The xray schools are churning them out here. Can you advise me after I submit my transcripts? Thank you so much. Sally

    • dbernard says:

      Thank you for your interest in the BS in Radiologic Sciences degree at FHCHS.

If you have any college credits in addition to your US Navy training we are able to evaluate those college transcripts and possibly transfer in additional credits.
