National nod for CNC students

Two CNC students have turned national heads.

Two CNC students have turned national heads.

Terry Mitchell and Shannon Carlsen, both in their second year of the school's medical radiology technology program, were singled out by the Ottawa-based Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists.

Mitchell won the association's national student essay contest for work where he evaluated the available diagnostic tools, weighing availability, cost and accuracy of diagnosis. His paper will be published in an upcoming edition of the peer-reviewed Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences.

"I think it is a testament to the quality of the medical radiology program and faculty at CNC," said Mitchell, in a press release. He is currently completing a clinical practicum at the Prince Rupert Regional Hospital.

Carlsen's essay was awarded a certificate of merit, coming within five points of the winning piece.

"I'm thrilled my work has been acknowledged at a national level," Carlsen said in a press release, noting her excitement in starting her last clinical placement this summer leading into beginning her career in the fall.
