Carolyn H. Green is being honored by the National Board of Surgical Technology & Surgical Assisting with an important milestone in her career as a surgical technologist. Green has maintained certification for 15 years as a CST. The NBSTA is proud to honor all milestone recipients for their hard work and commitment to the profession.
While CST certification is currently non-compulsory in many states, more and more states are adopting statutory requirements for certification of surgical technologists. A CST is required to renew their certification every four years, either by submitting 60 continuing education credits or by taking the NBSTA CST examination.
Established in 1974 and headquartered in Littleton, Colorado, the mission of the NBSTSA is to provide professional certification of surgical technologists and surgical first assistances, thus promoting quality patient care in the surgical setting.
