The Neurodiagnostics and Sleep Science program is dedicated to the enhancement and improvement of health care in North Carolina and beyond.

The Neurodiagnostics and Sleep Science (NDSS) bachelor’s degree program is offered by The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, with collaborative coursework offered by The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Graduates of the NDSS program benefit from the unique curricula which reflect the ever-changing nature of clinical practice and patient care. Advanced roles in neurodiagnostics and sleep science require significant levels of analysis, problem solving, and professional judgment. Graduates of the NDSS program are prepared with the knowledge and skill sets to fulfill these advanced roles. Prospective students will be motivated and qualified practitioners who want to pursue this degree to become the institutional, educational, governmental, and research leaders needed in these fields.

Employment opportunities include hospitals, specialized sleep and epilepsy labs, private practice, educational institutions, research facilities, and equipment design, sales, and manufacturing companies. Those who work in the field of sleep technology usually enjoy the flexibility of a three-day work week.

One hundred percent of graduates of the NDSS program are employed or in graduate school within the first year after graduation.

The Neurodiagnostics and Sleep Science Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Commission on Accreditation for Polysomnographic Technologist Education (CoA PSG).
