The ARIN Imaging Nurse Review Course is a 2-day course designed to provide an overview of the skills required for the nurse working in the imaging, interventional, and therapeutic environments.



Currently Scheduled Courses

This course can also be used to prepare for the radiologic nursing certification exam. It is not designed as a single study tool to prepare for this exam; however, it is a useful resource when used in conjunction with other study materials.

We are always looking for talented members to share their expertise, if you are interested in becoming a faculty member to teach the review course please send an email to the National Office at
