Iowa Radiology Nursing Jobs

Like many states across the Midwest, Iowa is facing a difficult challenge filling nursing jobs as its demand for nurses greatly exceeds its supply of them. Colleges are struggling to graduate enough qualified nurses to replace the aging workforce, and nursing faculty numbers are low. However, steps are being taken to solve this dilemma. More nursing programs are being approved statewide, and funding is being provided to pay loans of current RNs for their agreement to go into nursing education. The focus of this plan is to increase the number of qualified applicants to fill the abundance of nursing jobs in Iowa.

Radiology Nursing

Radiology nurses treat patients that are undergoing diagnostic radiation procedures such as radiation therapy, radiography, MRIs, mammography, computed tomography and ultrasound. The major professional organization for radiology nursing is the Association for Radiologic & Imaging Nursing (ARIN). The Radiologic Nursing Certification Board (RNCB), a subsidiary of ARIN, maintains the Certified Radiology Nurse (CRN) credential program. To be eligible to take the CRN credential exam, registered nurses must have an active RN license and at least 2,000 hours of radiology nursing experience within the past 3 years. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts excellent, overall job growth for registered nurses. The median registered nurse salary is $62,450.
