Professional Licensure Directory - Surgical Technology

Program: Associate of Applied Science – Surgical Technology

Most states do not require that surgical technologists hold a state-issued license in order to gain employment or practice in the state. However, several do require surgical technologists to hold professional certification to be considered for employment in most contexts. Some states require the professional certification and offer a registry.

Graduates of Roane State’s Surgical Technology CAAHEP accredited program are eligible to take the NBSTSA certification exam.
