The Surgical Technology program at Bergen Community College is the only community college program in the state of New Jersey and the first program to be nationally accredited. Major hospitals throughout New Jersey and the entire Eastern seaboard seek graduates of the Surgical Technology Program, often months before graduation. New facilities include an integrated three room suite incorporating a state-of-the-art classroom, fully equipped “mock” operating room reflective of a real hospital OR, and a sterilization/prep room. Students learning in this type of environment are better prepared to enter their clinical externship because of the hands-on practice and real life situations taught here.
The Surgical Technology program is accredited by the Accreditation Council on Education in Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting, a Committee of the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP).
