Congratulations to the graduates of the Surgical Technology Program at Jefferson College of Health Sciences, who achieved a 100% pass rate on the National Board Certified Surgical Technologist (CST) Examination! This is the second consecutive year that the graduates of the program have earned a 100% pass rate. It is incredibly hard to achieve a 100% pass rate. Just to give you an idea, the national average is only 69.8%! Great job!
