Personalized Attention and Small Class Sizes

Our programs offer students personalized attention through small class sizes, advising, and dedicated faculty focused on student success. A degree from one of these programs enables students to easily transition to an advanced degree. Students within our radiologic science and respiratory care programs are also provided with the opportunity for a strong clinical education, with other opportunities to connect with employers for possible job placement.

Simulation Center


With technology and thoughtfully designed space, we simulate real-life health care situations like interviewing a patient, reading an X-ray, or administering an injection. The St. Elizabeth Healthcare Simulation Center features seven simulation rooms including an operating room and intensive care unit. Well prepared nurses, respiratory therapists, and radiological technologists are critical in emergency situations. The spaces for practice, as described below, allow for exploration and learning in a safe environment.



The NKU Radiologic Science Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology.
