Jordein's favorite part of the Radiologic Sciences program included the clinical setting and directly applying skills learned to patient care.

"Being in the clinical setting helps you think critically and gain confidence in the exams you learn," said Jordein. He said the most difficult part of the program was changing to working 40 hours per week after college, along with giving the best care he can possibly give to patients in his care.

He has advice for students considering a career in radiologic sciences.

"Sit down and think back on your previous patient care experiences," said Jordein. "What are the areas you enjoyed and what can you improve on? Lastly, think about why you chose this profession and what motivates you to care for others."

The radiologic sciences program at NDSU begins with two or more years of pre-radiologic sciences academic courses, followed by a 21- to 24-month full-time professional internship within a hospital-based program affiliated with NDSU covering a four-state region. Program options include radiography, echocardiography, and medical diagnostic sonography.
