USF Radiologic Tech Students Achieve Perfect Pass Rate

November 14, 2017

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — Recently all 2017 graduates of the University of Saint Francis Associate Degree program in Radiologic Technology passed the national certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). This is the 23rd consecutive year that the USF Radiologic Technology program achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the first attempt.

“Maybe it’s role modeling, because I have excellent faculty,” said Department Chair Donna Lyke. “Part is because we do care so much, and spend so much more time with students than what is allotted in the classroom. It instills professionalism that makes them want to excel.”

The Radiologic Technology program at the University of Saint Francis is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).

Founded in 1890 in the Catholic Franciscan tradition, the University of Saint Francis offers more than 70 undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs through the School of Health Sciences, School of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Keith Busse School of Business and Entrepreneurial Leadership and School of Creative Arts. In addition to its traditional programs, USF designs focused curricula for working adults in Fort Wayne, Crown Point and online. In 2016, the University of Saint Francis expanded its presence to downtown Fort Wayne. USF Downtown houses the university’s business and music technology programs while offering enhanced internship and networking opportunities for students. The University of Saint Francis campus experience includes 16 athletic programs boasting two individual and three team NAIA national championships, and is recognized as an NAIA Five-Star Champion of Character institution. Approximately 2,300 students from a broad geographic region attend USF.
