I live near Vancouver, WA and am VERY interested in getting into surgical technology. I was wondering if anyone knew if I would be able to go to school at Mt. Hood Community College and get a job in Vancouver, WA. Does anything change state to state? Also, would I be able to do the training in a hospital in Vancouver? I want to do my training in a hospital that I want to work in but am not sure if I would be able to choose what hospital to do the training at. Mt. Hood is the closest school to me. It is still 45 minutes away. The next closest that I know of is Clover Park Technical School up in Lakewood, WA. I would greatly appreciate any help or comments.
