The program prepares individuals to be an integral part of the clinical team. As an EKG technician performing routine diagnostic or physiological tests, or as a monitor tech observing patient rhythms in real time, these dual roles are a necessary and sought after skill set often performed by other nursing staff cross-trained to perform these functions. A dedicated technician brings expertise to this area and relieves pressure from other departments as well as facilitating excellent patient care.
The successful candidate has to be prepared to put in a significant amount of study time outside the 60 lecture and lab hours required by the National Healthcare Association and other certifying bodies, and the SG Center’s program rigorously challenges the student to complete the training and score in the highest percentile on the National Certification Exam.
It is our job at the SG Center to ensure you maximize this opportunity; it is your job simply to decide to act.
