Thoroughly confused about becoming a registered Radiologist Techonologist or Sonographer - April 8th 2010, 10:21 PM

I am really confused on this process. I understand degree's do not help with promotion or better pay it simply is required to be registered, but then why are some programs 2 years and other 4 years just to become registered? Also, if you get registered in 1 state can you transfer to another?

I've been searching this answer and I cannot figure it out. Everyone seems to have different opinions.

The difference in program length probably has to do with content covered. For example, one can get a community college diploma or associate's degree in nursing or they can get a Bachelor's in it then become a Master's in it. Although both are in nursing, the first does not go into as much detail and is very applied and basic. I assume the same is for this.

Although I'm not in the US, I see no reason why being registered in 1 state wouldn't carry over to another state. For countries and continents you probably will need to be required to re-do your education and training in it, then pass whatever tests.

Actually at the Community College out here it's a 4 year program but you do not get a degree, it's solely to train you to become registered. I would go to that to learn more, but they don't even take your general ed into consideration. It's all anatomy/biology type classes so what I've taken so far is useless. I was going for a 2 year program to have something to fall back onto since I plan to be my bachelors is creative writing and would not make a substantial amount of money. It's rather irritating, because the Community College is the closest place but I REALLY don't want to go for 4 years just for a fall back job.

[edit]
Found a 2 year program thankfully.
