18VAC85-160-60 Renewal of licensure for a surgical assistant

I am a Licensed Surgical Assistant currently practicing in Suffolk, Virginia. I support all of the Board's proposed recommendations for Surgical Assistant License renewal, particularly requiring the completion of 38 hours of continuing education that can be validated by the National Surgical Assistant Association.
