I read through this forum and there aren't many people from the nyc on here. I have a few questions what school did you go to? Was it easy getting a job out of school?

Is there a demand for surgical techs in new york city? I searched hospitals online if jobs are available but I didn't seem to find any.

Any other things that someone interested in becoming a surgical tech in nyc or anywhere should know about?

Is there really no surgical techs from New York City here? I've seen a bunch from NJ but that's not really helpful to me.

I'm currently a surgical tech student, the school I'm attending is Mandl College of Allied Health. My school offers job placement & externship, it is also accredited. As far as getting a job, I'm not there yet, I haven't graduated, but there are jobs out there for surg techs, you probably don't see many postings because some people get hired on externship...

you need to check with the association of surgical technology because your school is not an accredited surgical program and that means you will not be able to get certified by ast the only one that counts

Hi.. my school is accredited by ABHES, there are many people that have graduated and have taken the CST exam, we can actually take the test in our school... our program is not CAHEP approved but it is ABHES approved.... check the ABHES website and you'll see it....

hi
I would like to know your opinion on Mandl. Did you like the program? did it prepare you enough for the certification and did you have trouble find employment? thanks

Hello, I have been a Surgical Tech for 11 years. I find it to be the most rewarding and equally frustrating thing that I have ever done. But I love it and wouldn't trade it for the world!!!

I was blessed to have taken a year and a half of Nursing courses before I started. I was trained on the Job at New York Eye and Ear Infirmary in NYC and then started doing contract/travel assignments which pay more and allow me to be in control of my time. Make sure that you obtain your national certification. That is a MUST!!!

I think that there are lots of jobs in NYC. Sometimes it seems so hard to get a foot in the door, though. I work through Supplemental Healthcare.

Study hard. Eat, sleep, live this profession and it will pay off for you in the end! I have been offered some part time teaching jobs lately. I would like to consult for TV or the movies if I can.
