Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 09, 2012
The new website Surgical Technologist Now (http://www.surgicaltechnologistnow.com) provides detailed information for would-be surgical technicians so they can make the right decisions as they navigate the growing field of surgical technology. People interested in pursuing the profession can consider this a one-stop location to find answers to such questions as: What kind of training is required? What types of jobs are available? How much can I expect to earn? And more.
Expected job growth in the surgical technology field means job prospects should be steady and solid for anybody entering training programs or who have already achieved certification. According to a recent report from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the job outlook for surgical technologists, also known as “scrubs”, is very bright, with an expected 19% increase in job growth between 2010 and 2020. This is faster than the national average job growth expectation of 14%.
Not surprisingly, these projects are partially responsible for increasing numbers of students and young professionals considering it as a career, and Surgical Technologist Now was created and launched to cater to this growing interest. “More and more people are searching for information about this profession online, and until now, there hasn’t been a place people could go to get answers to all their questions” said website owner Rachael Olsen. “And with the use of blogging software, social media networks, and other online tools, we can ensure the content we provide stays as up-to-date and accurate as possible.”
Olsen further attests that job prospects in surgical technology should be steady and solid for anybody starting scrub training programs or for those who have already completed accredited education programs and are maintaining certification. She attributes this to a few reasons:
- Surgery becoming safer with new advancements in technology
- More operations being done due to an understanding of how to treat them surgically
- The increasing age of the “baby boomer” generation which translates into more surgeries that typically accompany age (joint replacements, heart procedures, etc.)
- Surgical technologists are not as highly paid as RNs, which reduces overhead and overall cost in operating rooms, something vital in this rocky economy
Visitors to Surgical Technologist Now will find the site organized into easy-to-use section headings, including schools, training, certification, jobs, salary, and career. Inside each section are detailed descriptions of each category that provide a comprehensive overview of each topic. Further, the implementation of social sharing buttons throughout the site make it easy for visitors to tag, save and share useful information with their friends.
