Do you feel that those working in surgery should have a nursing degree first as well as a med./ surg. tech. degree? There is a program about 45 minutes away from here at a technical college that teaches classes to become a med. surg. tech. If you pass the test at the end you can do this work anywhere in the country.

That's funny; recently I had the pleasure of watching a surg tech in action as she harvested donor corneas. She may've felt a bit intimitated as 3 or 4 nurses peeked into the room while she "did her thing" for the Eye Bank, but we were curious.

She had skills we didn't. Totally different job. Check it out thoroughly. (Maybe shadow someone for a day??)

Good luck! :D

Around here most of the hospitals want to train you themselves. This was the first course at a technical school that I heard offered a med. surg. tech.course.
