Electroneurodiagnostics is one of the newer and most rapidly growing specialties in the medical field. It is devoted to the recording and study of the electrical activity of the brain and nervous system. END technologists record electrical activity arising primarily from the brain, spinal cord, peripheral nerves or somato-sensory systems using a variety of techniques and instruments.
END classes are held during the day. Students are expected to participate in classroom, laboratory and clinical (hospital) experience. (Students may be required to travel to out-of-town clinical sites.) The END program consists of four semesters which takes two years to complete. Graduates of the program will be eligible to apply to take the registration examination sponsored by the American Board of Registration of Electroencephalographic and Evoked Potential Technologist (ABRET).
Please note: Clinical facilities may require students to undergo criminal background checks and/or drug testing. Clinical facilities may refuse access to clinical experiences based on the results of criminal background checks and/or drug testing, which would result in the student being unable to continue in the END program.
College tuition is set by the North Carolina State Legislature and is subject to change. END students are required to purchase a variety of books, class uniforms, malpractice insurance, accident insurance, and other fees as set by the College. The approximate cost for the program is $4,500. (This figure is based upon in-state tuition rates and reflects an approximate cost only.)
