More about the National Surgical Assistants Association:
The National Surgical Assistant Association (NSAA) was the first organization in the country to establish standards of professionalism and proficiency for Non-Physician Surgical Assistants. The NSAA has a stringent process to qualify individuals to sit for the certification examination in order to receive the prestigious Certified Surgical Assistant (CSA) credential. Only those individuals who possess the knowledge, skills and proficiency to perform surgical assisting at the advanced level obtain the credential.
The certification examination for the CSA credential is known throughout the country as the most comprehensive, complex and thorough examination for testing the knowledge, skills and proficiency of the surgical assistant. Being an Approved Educational Program is a distinctive honor given by the NSAA.
