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.
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.
