Cardiovascular Technology (CVT) is an allied health profession specifically dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of patients who have or may have cardiac and/or peripheral vascular disease. Registered Cardiovascular Invasive Specialists (RCIS) are proficient in the use and application of analytical equipment. They prepare patients for diagnostic and intervention procedures and examine patients at the request or direction of physicians. Through sampling and recording, technologists provide a foundation of data from which precise anatomic and physiologic diagnosis may be established.
Steps to Apply to the CVT Program
A Drug Screening and Criminal Background Check will be required prior to enrollment in any nursing/allied health clinical course in order to ensure the safety of patients in the clinical setting. Students who do not comply with the drug screening and criminal background check are ineligible for placement in clinical agencies and therefore are not able to progress in the clinical nursing/allied health program. Students with a criminal background may be unable to progress in the clinical nursing/allied health program. It is the student’s responsibility to know whether they are eligible for licensure. If a student has a criminal background, it is the students’ responsibility to explore whether the background will prohibit them from being licensed and employed in the health care industry. HCC faculty and staff are NOT able to provide legal advice. If you have any questions about your existing criminal background, you may wish to discuss this with legal counsel.
