Child and Family Studies Major

The Child and Family Studies program leads to a Bachelor of Science
degree. Primary objectives of the program are to prepare professionals to
administer and/or work in programs that entail aspects of child develop-
ment and family relations, to teach at the adult level, or to administer
human service agencies at federal, state, or local levels. The program also
provides preparation for students who want to pursue graduate study in
child development or family studies.

Current IUP students who wish to major or minor in Child and Family
Studies must have a cumulative GPA of 2.3, after 45 credits, to be accepted
formally by the department. Students transferring into IUP with fewer than
45 credits must have a GPA of 2.3 upon completion of 45 credits total
(transfer plus IUP credits). Students transferring into IUP with more than
45 credits must have a GPA of 2.3 upon completion of their first semester.

The Child and Family Studies minor, consisting of 18 credits, is designed
for students who desire to work in programs that entail all aspects of child
development and family relationships and administration in human service
agencies at federal, state, and local levels but have their major coursework
in a related field. The Child and Family Studies minor is ideal for Psychol-
ogy, Sociology, Educational Psychology, Deaf Education, and Criminology
majors who wish to pursue careers working with children and families. The
minor includes two required courses and any combination of four additional
courses with a CDFR prefix from the list provided.

designed to provide a broad background in liberal education, coupled with
the specialized knowledge and skills required for professional nursing prat
tice. Additionally, the curriculum prepares the nurse to practice within the
professional code of nursing ethics, to function effective!) as a member of
the health care team, and to utilize scientific principles in planning, im-
plementing, and evaluating health care Hie nursing curriculum emphasizes
concepts in primary, secondary, and tertian, prevention of health problems

The first two semesters are devoted mainlj to I iberal Studies and science
courses considered essential to the nursing major throughout the lasi six
semesters, cluuc.il experiences in patient cue are provided in acute and

long-term care facilities as well as community settings

Respiratory Care

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in respiratory care prepares
the graduate for a career as a registered respiratory care practitioner.
Respiratory care practitioners evaluate, treat, and care for people with
breathing problems. They assist physicians in the evaluation and treatment
of heart and lung disorders. Respiratory care practitioners are experts in the
therapeutic use of medical gases, oxygen administration, pulmonary resusci-
tation, and artificial airways. They are employed in hospitals, extended care
facilities, clinics, rehabilitation centers, physicians' offices, private
companies providing home care services, and municipal organizations.

IUP and the Western Pennsylvania Hospital in Pittsburgh jointly offer this
program. The program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of
Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommen-
dation of the Committee on Accreditation for Respiratory Care. The pro-
gram consists of two academic years of preclinical studies (61 credits) on
the main campus at IUP and two academic years (59 credits) of clinical
study at the Western Pennsylvania Hospital School of Respiratory Care,
Pittsburgh. Students are expected to earn a GPA of at least 2.25 in the
required natural sciences and mathematics courses and an overall GPA of at
least 2.0 to be considered for admission into the clinical years in respiratory
care. However, since admission to the clinical years is competitive. IUP
cannot guarantee admission. Upon graduation, graduates arc eligible for
certification (CRT) and registration (RRT) in respiratory care. The granting
of the degree is not contingent upon passing the examinations. Graduates
are prepared for graduate degrees that may lead to careers in administration,
education, and medicine.

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in respiratory care is offered
for Certified Respiratory Therapists (CRT I who are graduates of an accred-
ited certificate or associate degree respiratory care program. CRT students
will be awarded advanced standing (33 credits) based on prior academic u ork
completed in a respirator, care program. Students fulfill degree require-
ments set by the university. This track is designed to prepare the certified
respiratory therapist (CRT) to function iii an advanced practice role

Detailed information is available in the department office regarding
requirements, such as health screening, liability insurance, legal clearance,
and professional uniforms.

Nuclear Medicine Technology

Nuclear Medicine Technology is a medical specialty in which allied health
care professionals, under the direction of a nuclear medicine physician, use
radioactive materials m the diagnosis and treatment of disease. They arc
responsible for patient education and preparation regarding the nuclear
medicine procedures, administration of radiopharmaceuticals, performing
complex computer imaging studies, and radiation safety procedures for both
patients and staff The nuclear medicine technologist's skills complement
those of the nuclear medicine physician.

The College of I lealth and 1 Iuman Services offers a curriculum leading to
the Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Nuclear Medicine Technol-
ogy. Students are admitted to the major as freshmen. Transfei Students and
those with a previous degree may also be admitted. The program of study-
consists of three years of preclinical study on the IUP main campus and
one year of clinical study at either the Nuclear Medicine Institute iNMIl at
the University of Findlay, I'indlay, Ohio, or the Nuclear Medicine Technol-
ogy program al the Community College of Allegheny County (CI AC I The
programs at NM1 and CCAC are fully accredited by the Joint Review
Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology
(JRCNMT). Graduates of the program are eligible to take the Nuclear Medi-
cine Technology national certificate examination offered b) the Nuclear
Medicine technology Certification Board and the American Registry of
Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) I he granting ol the degree is not
contingent upon passing the examinations.

Students must meet specific academic requirements to be considered for
admission to the NMI or to the CCAC Nuclear Medicine I'echnology pro-
gram. Admission is competitive; IUP cannot guarantee admission into
either of these facilities. Information regarding academic requirements and
other special requirements for the clinical year is available in the depart-
ment's office.
