Effective as of Fall 2016

What is "Electroneurodiagnostic Technology "?

The associate degree program in Electroneurodiagnostic Technology prepares competent entry-level Neurodiagnostic Technologists with additional expertise in the following additional areas: Evoked Potentials (EP); Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM); Nerve Conduction Students (NCS) and Polysomnography (PSG), in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains. Electroneurodiagnostic is the allied health care profession that records, monitors, and analyzes nervous system functions to promote the effective treatment of pathologic conditions. Technologists record electrical activity arising from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves, somatosensory or motor nerve systems using a variety of techniques and instruments. Technologists prepare data and documentation for interpretation by a physician. As part of the program, the students will complete a non-paid, supervised health-related practicum in a medical setting.
