New England Tech’s Associate in Science degree program in Surgical Technology has received the annual merit award from the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) for achieving at least a 90% graduate pass rate on the Certified Surgical Technologist (CST) examination from August 1, 2014 to July 31, 2015. Graduates obtaining national certification as a CST demonstrate by examination the understanding of the basic competencies for safe patient care in the operating room. The CST is widely recognized nationally as the foremost credential for surgical technologists. This certification is required for employment by many local, state and national health care organizations. Congratulations to the graduates and faculty of NEIT’s Surgical Technology program for this achievement.
