Transform Your Life With Surgical Assistant Training

The right career choices can transform your life. If you are currently a surgical technologist or an operating room (OR) nurse, you can become a surgical assistant (SA) to advance your career. Your choice of surgical assistant program could mean more opportunity, more challenge, more responsibility, more respect, and more money. Or a different choice could mean you'll be limited to holding retractors, suctioning, and cutting suture. So how do you choose? It could depend on what you want from your career.

Historically, the first assistant in surgery was another surgeon. Now there are two prevailing views about the assistant in our profession:

  • The non-MD surgical assistant is an advanced surgical tech or an OR nurse who can close the wound.
  • The non-MD surgical assistant is trained to effectively replace a second surgeon in the procedure. They have the same skills and knowledge a second surgeon brings to the first assistant role.

Our Mission

Ace Surgical Assisting is committed to providing the highest level of education, training, and services for working surgical professionals; all are uniquely designed to advance careers, increase financial well-being, and elevate the quality and safety of surgical care throughout the U.S.and around the world.

Take The Next Step

You can rest assured it is our goal to provide you with the kind of training that, when combined with your own drive and determination, results in an ACE surgical assistant. When you contact us, we can provide you with more specific information based on your current position in the operating room. From here, we can answer all of your questions and concerns about our program, and tell you how to begin.

What makes ACE™ stand out from other programs?

We utilize the best of distance-learning (a custom made website), hands-on training (only 6 days away from work), and clinical experience (at your hospital with surgeons who already like working with you) at a fraction of the price of some programs that only teach you to become a 'tech who assists.' If you've already graduated from a surgical assistant or RNFA program and currently assist in surgery, but just hold retractors, suction, and cut suture, taking our 6 day Surgical SkillLab™ by itself may be just the thing you need to break through into a higher level of performance.
