Romeoville/Joliet degree program earns accreditation

ROMEOVILLE – Rasmussen College, a regionally accredited private college, recently announced its surgical technologist associate degree program at its Romeoville/Joliet campus has earned programmatic accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs.

Accreditation signifies the Surgical Technologist program has met or exceeded standards and criteria for educational quality in surgical technology curriculum and preparation for students to work successfully in the profession upon graduation.

The Rasmussen College surgical technologist associate degree program provides hands-on learning in a fully equipped and industry-standard simulated surgical suite. Students also complete a surgical technologist practicum in a real-world health care environment.

The program can be completed in as few as 21 months. Upon graduation, surgical technologist students are prepared for the CST National certification exam.

Students can then choose to enter the workforce or to transfer their credits into the Rasmussen College health and wellness bachelor’s degree program. For information, visit www.rasmussen.edu.
