Licensure Exam and State of Nevada Licensure Requirements Disclosure

After successfully completing the UNLV Radiography Program, students will be eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification exam. Graduates must pass the ARRT exam in Radiography to become a Radiologic Technologist. Many states require certification from the ARRT to practice as a Technologist.

The UNLV Radiography Program encourages all prospective and current students to fully explore the licensure requirements in each state they wish to work as a Radiologic Technologist. The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) provides information on individual state licensing departments.

Nevada Radiologic Technologist Licensure – Educational Requirements (NRS 653.510) Has successfully completed an educational program accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology, or its successor organization or another national accrediting organization approved by the Division.

Nevada Radiologic Technologist Licensure – Non-Educational Requirements (NRS 653.510) Is certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, or its successor organization, to practice in the area of radiography.

Those planning to apply for a Nevada license in Radiologic Technology are encouraged to review the Nevada State laws and regulations. Learn more from Nevada’s Radiation Control Program.
