"Being in a clinical setting as a student helped me transition into an actual hospital without being as nervous or anxious, there was more of a fluidity to it. I was able to learn hands-on about surgical procedures and sterilization techniques. There’s a lot to be offered as a surgical technologist and I look forward to learning more and climbing up the ladder."

"Being in the surgical tech program was a fun experience at Swedish Institute. I learned a lot in my clinical rotations, and clinical helped me tremendously with preparing for the "OR World." During my last term, Career Services helped me so much, especially with my resume. Richard was able to find me a job, and now I'm living my dream of working in the operating room!"
