Don't Leave It at the Door! This curriculum is mainly the preparation for the certifying exam at the end of the program. I received the advice not to just leave your books in the car and they were right. This is an intense amount of knowledge and knowing that type of student is out there only makes me prouder to get where I am going.The clinical experience is very hands on and is an avenue of potential job placement. The school has two mock operating rooms and a new campus.The instructors warn us of landmines before we get there and the program is what you make of it.

If You Do the Work, It Will Come. The career in surgical technology is difficult. Trying to find job placement after passing is relatively easy and hospitals have an abundance of need. However, if you don't excel in the classroom or the clinical site you can expect to be in a tough predicament. If you do what is required and open your mind the jobs and references will be there. Also, as with any career your attitude needs to be accepting. We also have the vice president of the state assembly who is trying to gain us respect and mandatory certification in the OR. The statistics are not high but the instructors do their best to provide opportunity. Take advantage now and you will not regret the investment.

They showed me my financial aid and tuition fees that will began as this process goes along. My concern was not being able to afford to go to school. How I wasn't a big fan on taking out loans and is there any way I can get some help. I express to them t hat I want to make a better life for my daughter, but at the same time I would find it very unnecessary to be in debit because of that. I am just to trying to have a decent life for my family.
