Carlos Sanchez and Shondra McGill - New Jersey 2017 FAST Recipients
At AST's 2017 National Conference - New Orleans, two NJAST Board Members were recognized and honored to receive the FAST Award. FAST, or Fellow of The Association of Surgical Technologists Designation, is awarded to recognize those individuals upholding the highest professional, ethical and moral standards and traditions of the surgical technology profession, and whose professional activities have been devoted to the advancement of the profession toward improving the quality of surgical patient care.
AST awards the FAST Designation only to those surgical technologists whose professional activities have been devoted to the practice of surgical technology, and who abide by the AST Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice. Individuals awarded the FAST will commit and adhere to these ethics and standards of practice.
The first FAST Designations were awarded in 2006, to recognize surgical technologists who have achieved professional standards of the highest order.
Shondra and Carlos join Carol Conover as the only New Jersey recipients of this prestigious award.
NJAST proudly congratulates them in their achievements in the knowledge they will continue to demonstrate the integrity and conduct representative of such recognition.
