The Surgical Technologist Alignment was approved by the Kansas Board of Regents on May 19, 2010. Colleges are granted one year from the approval date to implement the alignment.
State Business and Industry Committee Recommendation:
That college surgical technologist programs require students take the Certified Surgical Technologist (CST) credentialing examination as part of program completion. Successful passage of the CST examination is recommended but not required. Individual employers will determine if successful obtainment of the CST credential is required for employment.
