I am currently enrolled, ready to start next monday the surgical tech degree program. However the school just joined with another school (this past week) and changed it's name. It now says it is ARC-ST accredited and not CAAHEP anymore. I was curious to whether or not this is going to make a difference in getting started in my career, and if I should transfer to a CAAHEP accredited school, and if the credits would transfer. It seems like to get National Certication Exam, I would need to go to a CAAHEP school, or I would have to wait 5 years for the PAE to be accredited by CAAHEP anyway? Also any help with AST vs. NBSTSA? Is the goal to be CAAHEP accredited because you don't have to add up 60 CE credits? I am wondering if anyone has any advice on this situation, as I am having a hard time understanding this.
