Owensboro Community and Technical College is pleased to announce that for the
second straight year the students in the Surgical Technology program achieved a 100%
pass rate for the National Board of Surgical Technology amp; Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA)
Certification Exam, which is a requirement for employment in most surgical facilities.
100% pass rates for professional certification is a great demonstration of the quality
of instruction our students are receiving. This pass rate also shows employers that
these students are fully prepared to begin their professional careers remarked Dr.
Scott Williams, President of OCTC. Zara Basham the program coordinator for Surgical
Technology commented, This is a testament to the hard work and diligence of our students
and faculty. The students must have the knowledge and demonstrate the skills needed
to be successful. I am very proud of their accomplishments.
The Surgical Technology program is a two-year, including prerequisite courses, selective
admission program. The application deadline was June 1, but students may begin the
process for the next round of applications by taking general education courses. Basham
encourages interested students to sit in on a class or two, so they can really get
a feel for what the program is about. For more information please contact email@example.com
