Stevens-Henager Awarded for 100-Percent Student Pass Rate in CST Certification

Press Release

August 28, 2013

Ogden – The National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) has awarded Stevens-Henager College an annual merit award for achieving a 100-percent pass rate for students taking the Certified Surgical Technologist (CST) examination from August 2012 to July 2013. The CST certification demonstrates that graduates have an understanding of the basic competencies for safe patient care in the operating room.

The CST is widely recognized in the health care community as the foremost credential for surgical technologists in the nation, and is required for employment within many local, state and national health care organizations.

“We are very pleased to receive this recognition on behalf of our students who worked so hard to pass the CST exam, and the instructors who helped prepare them,” said Vicky Dewsnup, president of Stevesns-Henager.

“Having a high exam success rate is also important to us because prospective students look at exam and certification pass rates as a criterion for selecting a school,” said Cynthia Farley, program director for surgical technology. “It’s a great way to determine if a college will provide a quality education.”

The CST exam is the only fully accredited test offered by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) for surgical technologists in the U.S. NCCA accreditation assures that the CST examination meets stringent examination development and administration standards.
