Yes, she is: Provided she has a letter from an appropriately board
certified medical scientist stating she has experience in fixation,
microtomy, processing, and staining.. I copied from the ASCP website:

Route 2: Associate degree or at least 60 semester hours (90 quarter
hours) of academic credit from a regionally accredited
college/university, with a combination of 12 semester hours (18 quarter
hours) of biology and chemistry, AND one year full time acceptable
experience in histopathology in the U.S., Canada or a CAP/The Joint
Commission (JCAHO)/AABB accredited laboratory within the last ten years
under the supervision of a pathologist (certified by the American Board
of Pathology in Anatomic Pathology), or an appropriately board certified
medical scientist=2E

Administration.  She has been trained for Histology and has worked in
