Surgical Tech Magic Dust

What the heck is Surgical Tech Magic Dust?Surgical Tech Robert in Surgery

You are going to love this one....

If you give me just three minutes of your time right this very second, I promise you this article may just change your life!

AND I have something for you that can propel your surgical career to an entirely new level & it won't cost you a single penny to get started.

Chances are, if you're visiting this website, you are looking for a way to improve your current career or student situation.

Whether you're just thinking about surgical technology as a career or you're currently working in the field, I'm willing to say that you are:

 "Looking for Something MORE"

You know, I talk to a lot of people every single day about becoming a surgical professional and ways to advance their career.

I mean, I have conversations with professionals & non-professionals on all levels (in & outside of the medical field) who are just not happy with their current work, career, and even life  situation.

Some of the people I speak with are unemployed looking for a new career, some of the people I speak with are new ST grads looking for that first job, and some of the people I speak with are seasoned surgical tech veterans looking for a route to move up the career ladder.

Ok, ok, so I talk to a lot of people....and you might be saying, well what's the point here..??..

Well, my point is that I hear things on every single career, student, and experienced professional level that you can possibly imagine.

AND to be quite honest, most of the people I speak to are motivated to move forward and continue to grow into a professional level that will help propel them through the career portion of their life.

I love speaking with people in general but I particularly love hearing the excitement during the conversations I have with the indivuals who have the attitude that they are going to do what it takes to move their career forward.

Yep, these people have that "nothing can stop me" attitude and they are going to work the process until they reach their goals.

However, on the other hand, although I also love speaking to the people who don't have that motivated attitude, I must say these unmotivated people often leave me wondering...

You see, there are a lot of people out there who want to move up the professional ladder but they don't want to go through "the climb" to get to the top of the ladder.

There are people out there who approach the career ladder, take a good look at where they want to be, and then they just want to be boosted all the way to the top while skipping the steps in between.

AND, once they realize they just can't skip the steps to climb to the top of the career ladder, they move on looking for another shortcut that inevitably leads them right back to the first step of that ladder.

Yep these are the people who seem to be going through their career life
looking for some sort of MAGIC DUST.

Stay with me here,
I'm about to get a little emotional....

Oh my, if I could just come up with a formula and produce a little magic dust, I'd be a zillionaire$$$

I KNOW this sounds a bit nutty, but PLEASE read's PURE!

Think about what the magic dust could do;

Hmmm, if I just sprinkled a little magic dust over my head as I approach my first day in surgical tech school, I'd automatically walk out as a certified ST with years of experience under my belt and I'd be the lead cardiothoracic SurgTech at the worlds most advanced robotic surgical laser facility.

Then I'd take my magic dust and call the first assist school, get the info, hang up the phone, sprinkle a little more magic dust over my shoulders, and wa-la, I'd be a certified first assistant with my billing company in place making me 10 bazillion dollars a year.

AND to think, I did all this in a matter of just two days with a little jar of magic dust.

OK, OK,... please forgive me for my warped sense of humor and socially inept sarcasm.

Although I am trying to be a bit humorous here, the reality of what I'm saying is true.

You see, there are a lot of people out there who really do look for that shortcut (magic dust) to a professional career in surgery.

BUT, for some reason, plenty of people find out that there is a little process or work involved and they just don't want to put in the effort or time required.

Listen to me please, you know I speak from the heart and these articles are not what you might find in a brain surgery text book or something meant to sound like a hundred page contract full of tiny font & giant words that only make sense to a law professor.

NO, I speak from my heart & decades of surgical/medical career experience AND I simply want you to avoid the mistakes I've made.


ABOVE ALL, I sincerely want you to be a
Successful Surgical Professional!!!


AND to be successful in surgery you have got to be willing to go through the process of being successful in surgery.

Trust me, if I would have known someone like me 20 years ago, I wouldn't have made the mistakes I made in the first 10 years of my surgical career.

That's right, after a couple of years into my ST career, I would have skipped the bad attitude, the arrogance, the fights with the O.R. team, and all the other turmoil I created for myself because of my lack of "success knowledge", the wrong mind-set, and my self induced lack of motivation to think more professionally and less of "its a job" kind of thing....

Now I'm not trying to sound arrogant or like a "know it all", BUT I PAID MY DUES  in surgery the HARD WAY  &  initially I often did it always looking for that magic dust...


PHEW..., sorry about getting a little emotional here but I just don't want you to make the same mistakes I made over a 10 year period of the first part of my surgical career.


If you can get one thing from this article, it's this:


Do whatever it takes & go through the process (legally & honestly) to move yourself up the career ladder.


It's just that simple!


Develop a plan, commit to it, and work it.

If you're on the fence about surgical tech school, jump in & start moving forward.

  • Plan to study on a regular basis
  • Be open to learn something new every day
  • Keep a positive attitude


If certification is keeping you from moving forward:

  • Get certified
  • Whether you graduated from a surgical tech school or trainined on the job, there are avenues of certification for everyone out there


If you're burned out as a surgical tech:

  • Get into a first assist training program
  • Go back to school for something else that motivates you
  • Research & investigate other career options you're interested in


If you've done it all:

  • Give back
  • Teach
  • Help someone get to where you are


Listen to me my friends,
motivation & goal is to help YOU become Successful!


We can all learn something from someone who's been there and done that.

Well, I've been there and done that AND I've often had to go back and do it again....


I have always said and will continue to promote the fact that:

  •  An education in surgical technology can open up doors & opportunities beyond what you may know about right now


But there is a process and there is no magic dust or shortcuts to get through the process.

Time will continue to fly by whether you take the step to move toward your goals or not.

If you can visualize the last 5 years of your life, it probably seems like yesterday.

Don't let time or a lack of motivation prevent you from working the process and getting to be where you are meant to be.

FINALLY, as I mentioned at the beginning of this article. 

I have something for you that can propel your surgical career to an entirely new level & it won't cost you a single penny to get started.

If you want to get into first assistant training but just don't have any money to get started, well, GREAT NEWS!

I recently had a meeting with the CEO of the FA school I promote and he agreed to a ZERO DOWN enrollment fee.

Yep, you can start your first assistant training with absolutely no money up front!
