By graduating from a nuclear medicine technology program in Wisconsin, students can earn certificates of completion, associates degrees, and bachelor degrees. While an associate degree is considered a professional standard among nuclear medicine technologists nationwide, a Certificate in Nuclear Medicine Technology is most commonly awarded by educational programs in Wisconsin.
