Surgical Technologist Training Programs

Norton Healthcare offers both associate degree and an on-the-job apprenticeship program that prepare students seeking a career as a surgical technologist. Eligible students can choose between the following two unique pathways to obtain the needed credentials for employment.

Associate Degree from Jefferson Community and Technical College

Students can enroll in the associate degree program from Jefferson Community and Technical College (JCTC). In this traditional setting, students will complete prerequisite courses including anatomy and physiology; medical terminology; and sterile procedures. Students are eligible for tuition assistance through both the Norton Scholar Program and Norton Healthcare’s Surgical Technologist Apprenticeship Program.

JCTC’s surgical technologist program is a two-year associate degree program. During the second year, students will transition into the surgical technologist student position where they will learn on the job and complete their clinical requirements.
