Surgical Technology prepares the graduate for employment as an integral part of a surgical team.
Surgical technologists work closely with surgeons, anesthesiologists, registered nurses, and other surgical staff in delivering patient care and assuming appropriate responsibilities before, during, and after surgery. Surgical Technologists are employed in acute and ambulatory care facilities. Upon completion of the basic one-year program, the student is granted a Technical Certificate, or a student may wish to pursue an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) Degree. Near completion of the program, students sit for the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) Certified Surgical Technologist (CST) exam. Upon graduation from the program and successful completion of the exam, students will be designated as a Certified Surgical Technologist (CST).
