Graduate Takes Advantage of Refresher Courses to Update Skills

Jul 14, 2014

Natasha Jackson, a surgical technology graduate from the Florence Campus, recently returned to American National University to take advantage of the free refresher courses that are available to graduates.
Natasha earned a degree in surgical technology in 2008, then went to nursing school for a short time and never got started in her surgical technology career. 

She’s currently working as a certified nursing assistant (CNA) at St. Elizabeth Hospital, so she decided to update her skills in order to take the surgical technology certification exam.  “Now, you have to be certified.  Back then, six years ago, you didn’t have to,” explained Natasha.

Natasha said that she enjoyed seeing various surgeries when she participated in clinicals during her program, and she’s looking forward to getting back into the operating room.  “Never let your college education go to waste,” she said.

Natasha Jackson, a 2008 graduate of the surgical technology program at the Florence Campus, is taking advantage of the tuition-free refresher courses that are available to American National University graduates.  She's updating her skills in preparation to take the exam to become a Certified Surgical Technologist (CST).
