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

I am a licensed surgical assistant practicing in the Hampton Roads area, and I am currently the President of the Virginia Association of Surgical Assistants. I support the board's recommendations for surgical assistant license renewal, particularly the 38 hours of continuing education credits that can be validated by the National Surgical Assistant Association.
