A total of seven students from Angelina College’s Diagnostic Medical Sonography program passed their national certification exams and graduated recently as Registered Diagnostic Sonographers.
Those students made program history by earning registration in two specialties: Abdomen and OB/GYN specialties. Program director Casey Davis said she has never before had a class take both specialty exams before graduating.
The students are Esmeralda Payan (Nacogdoches), Bridget Bass (Timpson), Shelbie Courvelle (Moscow), Hannah Herrington (Lufkin), Britni Cooper (Shelbyville), Karina Jacobo (Central) and Irene Acevedo (Lufkin).
AC’s Sonography program offers a cooperative program with area hospitals that is designed to provide understanding, proficiency, and skill in diagnostic medical sonography.
Upon completion of the program, the successful student is awarded an Associate in Applied Science Degree and meets the requirements set by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) to apply for their licensure examination.
The program curriculum provides a balance of didactic and technical courses which affords each student individual opportunities for educational development and clinical competence.
