College Signs Transfer Agreement with University of Holy Cross
RALEIGH, N.C. (March 29, 2022) - In a special online ceremony, Wake Tech Community College and the University of Holy Cross (UHC) in New Orleans signed an articulation agreement making it possible for Wake Tech students who earn an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) in Electroneurodiagnostic Technology (EDT) to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences Curriculum for Electroencephalogram (EEG) Technologists online with UHC.
Electroneurodiagnostic technologists, also referred to as neurodiagnostic technologists, utilize electronic testing equipment to record electrical activity arising from the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves. They work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, epilepsy monitoring units, sleep disorder centers and research institutions.
"This is a chance for our graduates to continue their education and further their career opportunities in such an expansive health care field," said Wake Tech President Dr. Scott Ralls. "Completing a bachelor’s degree will allow our students to advance in their career field to move into management and research positions."
"We are pleased to offer Wake Technical Community College graduates the opportunity to complete their bachelor’s degree online with the University of Holy Cross and are excited about this partnership which will open so many doors for so many students," said UHC President Stanton McNeely III.
Neurodiagnostic Technology is a fast-growing field in the health care industry. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, neurodiagnostic technologists can earn as much as $97,000 annually in the United States.
UHC was the first university in the country to offer an accredited clinical Neurodiagnostic Technology program at the bachelor's degree level.
Wake Tech’s first class of EDT students will graduate this spring. Applications are currently being accepted for Fall semester. For more information, email Rebecca Rendahl at [email protected].
