Salary Outlook For Nuclear Medicine Technologists in California
California, as we know it today, was built from a foundation of ancient cultures, Spanish explorations and gold. It seems to call to the adventurous and those seeking a dream. California stretches from the border of Mexico in the south, to Oregon in the north, making it the longest state in the US. At various times in history, it has been suggested to split the state — north from south — into two separate states.
You can expect a salary range of $57,000 to $87,000 annually as a Nuclear Medicine Technologist in California.
There are two nationally recognized certification programs, the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and from the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB). You can be certified by either agency, or just one. Much will depend on where you will work and what the employer’s requirements are. Both the ARRT and NMTCB have different eligibility requisites along with an exam you will need to pass from each organization. The general process is much like the state board exam.
