The need for certified neurodiagnostic technologists is immediate. With an aging population comes more people diagnosed with neurological disorders. The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics named neurodiagnostics a bright outlook profession, with much faster than average growth. Salaries range from $40,000 at entry level to $180,000 for those continuing their education and specializing in interoperative neuromonitoring.

When you earn an Associate of Applied Science degree, you will be qualified for an entry-level position. You’ll work side by side with physicians and healthcare specialists in:

  • hospitals
  • labs
  • clinics

Increase your earning potential with specialized certifications such as:

  • EEG (critical in head injury and epilepsy diagnosis)
  • Intensive care units
  • Intraoperative neuromonitoring in operating rooms
  • Pediatrics
  • Neonatal
