Everything You Need To Know About NMC's New Cardiovascular Sonography Program

Posted on Tue, Dec 03, 2019

Nebraska Methodist College (NMC) is now offering a bachelor's degree option in Cardiovascular Sonography. Classes began August 2019, with the first students graduating in spring 2022 with their bachelor’s degree.

As the role of the sonographer has evolved, NMC decided to offer a bachelor's degree option to keep up with the education demand for this role from several institutions. A bachelor’s degree will also advance students’ careers in this field.

“A cardiovascular sonographer’s role is vital to the cardiologists and the vascular doctors for treatment of the patient. Having a higher education demonstrates that a sonographer is well educated in their support role to the physicians,” Becca Bouckaert, MPA, RDCS, RVT, program director for the Cardiovascular Sonography program at NMC, said. “This role has evolved over the years, and more and more sites are requesting sonographers with a higher education. At NMC, we want to offer a variety of tracks to accommodate every student.”
