Accelerated Alternate Delivery Program

Dear Prospective Student:

Thank you for your interest in the Accelerated Alternate Delivery Program (AADP - Bridge) at Gulf Coast State College. The AADP is available to individuals employed as a surgical technologist prior to March 1, 2000, graduates of non-accredited surgical technology schools, or military trained surgical technologists who desire certification. The program is designed to prepare students to sit for the certification examination for Surgical Technologists.

The following course is recommended to meet the Medical Terminology and Anatomy and Physiology requirements: STS0009 Terms, Structure, and Function of the Human Body (includes medical terminology). Courses in Anatomy and Physiology, along with a Medical Terminology course, may be transferred or substituted as appropriate and approved by Program Coordinator.

However, it is required by the State of Florida that 25% of the program, a minimum of 12 credit hours, must be taken at GCSC to graduate from the program. So if you are substituting courses, you may need to take one or more at GCSC to fulfill the 12-credit hour minimum requirement. Courses do not have to be taken in sequence. However, you may find it helpful to complete the Anatomy and Physiology requirements prior to the STS0120 Surgical Specialties

I; STS0121 Surgical Specialties

II;

and STS0122 Surgical Specialties III classes since they cover a large portion of Anatomy and Physiology as a review. At your request, your transcripts will be officially evaluated by our Admissions Office for acceptance. They will be evaluated for appropriate course substitutions or external credit awarded.

Please read everything in the attached application packet to learn about our program. Additional information regarding Surgical Technology can be obtained at www.ast.org, the official website of the Association of Surgical Technologists.

You can visit our website http://www.gulfcoast.edu/health_sciences/surgtech/default.asp to learn about our program. If you decide that you would like to pursue certification, you can begin the process of applying for admission by following the instructions within the enclosed Checklist. Please follow the steps to be sure that your application is handled quickly and efficiently. Doing items out-of-sequence may delay your application process.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to call Craig Wise at 1-800-311-3685 ext. 3311, or Libby McNaron at 850-873-3551, or toll free 1-800-311-3685 ext. 3551. We look forward to working with you in the future.

Sincerely,

Libby McNaron, RN, CST, CNOR, BSN, MS

Surgical Technology Bridge Program

Accelerated Alternate Delivery Program

AADP Policies

(For qualified students entering the program January, 2005 or later.)

General Information

The Accelerated Alternate Delivery Program in Surgical Technology was developed to assist non-certified currently practicing surgical technologists to obtain the educational background they need to be eligible to sit for the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) certification examination. Surgical technologists interested in this program must fit into one of three groups:

1. On-the-job trained surgical technologists who completed training before March 1, 2000; or

2. Formally trained surgical technologists who completed their education from a non-Commission on Accreditation of the Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) accredited program in surgical technology; or

3. Military trained surgical technologists who desire certification.

The Accelerated Alternate Delivery Program in Surgical Technology is a program of 45 vocational credits. Up to 28 of those vocational credits in lab skills and clinical experience may be granted by documented work experience in the field. The documentation includes a portfolio package produced by the applicant.

Competency validation is completed by the applicant’s Supervisor and/or Proctor. Clinical Lab Examination is a multiple choice and short answer examination that covers the same skills and principles that traditional and Distance Education students have to verbalize during testing skills stations for those courses.

A course Lab Manual outlining the core skills and principles is provided for the applicant to review prior to the examination. See the Fee Schedule in application packet for testing fees. The remaining 17 vocational credits representing 10 courses must be successfully completed. Of those 10 courses, 4 courses can be challenged by examination: STS0006 Orientation to Surgical Services; STS0003 Introduction to Surgical Technology; STS0155 Surgical Techniques and Procedures; and STS0920 Surgical Specialty Topics.

Only 12 core credits must be taken at GCSC. All others can either be transferred in or be evaluated for course substitutions or external credit.

To challenge, you register for the courses and complete the pre-assessment examination for that course. The pre-assessment examination for each course must be completed with a 70% score, or "C", to successfully challenge the course. In the event the score is less than 70%, you must successfully complete all of the course assignments, examinations, and final examination (not the same examination) as outlined in the course Syllabus.

To graduate, the student must register for, and complete, at least 12 credits, or 25%, of the course at Gulf Coast State College either by challenge exam (STS0003, STS0006, or STS0155) or course completion.

Applicant Responsibilities

Apply to the College

:

____ Step 1. New students should apply for General Admission to Gulf Coast State College. Application is available at the Admissions Office or online at www.gulfcoast.edu. Click "Apply Online" located under the "Future Students" listing, and follow the instructions posted online.

____ Step 2. New students must pay the $20 college application fee online, at our Bookstore, or at the GCSC Business Office (in person or by phone). If this is not paid, you cannot get registered for courses. Failure to pay the application fee at the time of submission can result in your ineligibility for program consideration.

____ Step 3. Request OFFICIAL transcripts from High School or GED with scores, and have them sent to Admissions Office of GCSC. Forms are available in the Admissions Office, online, or at the end of this application packet.
