Receiving Your Vascular Technician Training In New Jersey

There are a few schools that offer programs in vascular technology located in New Jersey. Students can choose from undergraduate programs that lead to a bachelor's degree, or they can choose to earn a certificate in vascular technology. The certificate program and the degree program are both typically full-time courses at most schools. Some may be part time, but students should research this prior to enrolling if they are unable to commit to a full schedule.

During their courses, students will learn about vascular anatomy, pathophysiology and vascular physiology. They will also learn several applications of surgical and medical therapeutics to support technologists' roles in managing vascular patients. Medical terminology, English and several other supporting courses are required. Most schools offer classroom and clinical labs. In some cases, lecture courses may be offered online. However, clinical programs are part of every certificate or degree, so students should plan to spend some time on campus or at a medical training facility.

Vascular Technician Licensing In New Jersey

After completing either a degree or certificate program, it is recommended that New Jersey students take the national voluntary certification exam for added distinction and better chances of job placement. However, the licensing exam is voluntary. Some employers may require licensing with the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonographers. There are several certification options, but the board requires an annual renewal fee as well as a 30-credit minimum every three years of continuing education study.

Career Outlook For Vascular Technicians In New Jersey

For graduates of vascular medical sonography programs in New Jersey, the salary range is higher than it is in most other parts of the country. In May 2012, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported that the average wage range in New Jersey was between $59,900 and $80,000 annually. Experts predict the demand for vascular techs and sonogram technicians will increase in the next decade.

This is due to the heightened demand for medical services with health care laws changing and the ever-increasing aging population. People are living longer, the population is growing and people are more likely to need these services as they age. This is good news for people who are considering attending sonography schools. It is important to find a school that meets individual needs, so prospective students in New Jersey should consider all of their options before enrolling.
