Electroneurodiagnostic Technology

Campus Location: Peosta, Calmar

Program Entry: Fall, Spring, Summer

Award: Associate of Applied Science degree granted from Eastern Iowa Community College (EICC)

Description:

The Electroneurodiagnostic (END) Technology program offered between NICC and Eastern Iowa Community College (EICC) allows you to complete general education courses through NICC and transfer to EICC for program-specific course work.

Electroneurodiagnostic technology is the scientific field devoted to the recording and study of electrical activity of the brain and nervous system. Used for medical evaluation and research, it includes procedures that assess the function of the nervous system. Technologists record electrical activity arising from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves or somatosensory systems using a variety of techniques and equipment. Technologists also prepare patients for procedures, record electrical potentials, obtain medical histories, calculate results and maintain equipment. They work with specially trained physicians who interpret the data and provide clinical impressions. Employment opportunities exist in hospitals, clinics, physician offices, research facilities and epilepsy and sleep centers.

This program is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Electroneurodiagnostic Technology, and graduates are eligible for national examination given by the American Board of Registry of Electroneurodiagnostic Technologists (ABRET).
