Rad Tech/nuclear Medicine Question?

I am a lost senior in high school. If someone was to go to college for a degree to be a rad tech, could they also go to school for nuclear medicine.
how long do you go to school to be a nuclear medicine tech?
can that and a rad tech degree be intertwined?
or do actual radiologists get involved in nuclear medicine.
i am so lost please help!
i wanted to be a radiologist….but i live in louisiana don’t think it will be possible for me to travel to our med schools….sooo i’m considering being a rad tech..which just takes the x-rays…can i deal with nuclear medicine too?
