NDNU To Accept Credit For Courses From Mills-Peninsula Health Services

Belmont, CA, August 31, 2010 — Notre Dame de Namur University and Mills-Peninsula Health Services today announced a new articulation agreement that would allow students to transfer credit for some courses from Mills-Peninsula Health Services School of Diagnostic Imaging to NDNU.

Courses available for transfer will include Anatomy, Radiation Biology, Radiographic Science, and Communication Skills. All courses will be considered on a course-by-course basis, and will have to be approved for credit toward an academic major by the appropriate department on campus before they will be allowed to transfer.

“We value our connection with local educational institutions including Mills-Peninsula Health Services and appreciate the opportunities this will create for our students,” said Barbara Caulley, dean of the School of Business and Management, who was instrumental in establishing this articulation agreement.

The Mills-Peninsula Health Services School of Diagnostic Imaging received accreditation in 2009 by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). This accreditation is for eight years, the maximum duration that may be awarded by JRCERT. The school is also an approved Radiologic Technology School by the California Board of Public Health – Radiologic Health Branch.
