Surgical Tech Lifestyle
Surgical Tech Position
You will quickly discover the lifestyle you may lead as a surgical tech can be one of flexibility and control.
The operating room is not usually run just on one shift Monday through Friday.
Surgical Tech hours, shifts, and days available to work can be incredibly flexible.
Some hospitals staff three shifts 24/7 while others work on a "call" basis after the main shift is finished.
Surgical Tech shifts vary between 8 and 12 hours.
A normal work week for the operating room and most surgical techs, not including "call" or shift rotation, is Monday - Friday.
The shifts available and days worked for the surgical tech will vary depending on the type of hospital or facility you decide to work in.
Based on the fact that the operating room is not usually open for business only between the hours of 9 - 5, becoming a surgical tech greatly increases your chances of working a schedule during the day (or night) that accommodates exactly what you need.
Aside from having flexibility with the hours and days that you work, you will also have the opportunity to advance your career after you’ve put in some time and gotten a little experience.
Ever since I became a surgical tech, I’ve had the opportunity to work as a surgical tech Instructor, Trainer & Preceptor for new Students, Nurses, & Interns, and in Medical Sales. I’ve also had the luxury to pursue other interests such as personal training, acting, and traveling, just to name a few.
a surgical tech is going to open up doors that you may have never even heard of
before. I would have never thought after I started my first job as a surgical
tech that one day I would be selling Spinal Implants and making quite a bit of
money doing it. Nor would I have thought that I would travel across the
