[Histonet] The monkey cranking the microtome
If I were to go back to college for 4 years my goal would be more lofty than
to remain a histotech. I think there are a lot of people who do this
because it pays well and it doesn't take to long to learn. If you start having
requirements like college credits, people will be less likely to take interest
in histotechnology as a career. They just started these requirements, but the
need for histotechs is starting to slow. I've heard from older techs that
the ASCP has been back and forth on their pre-reqs many times depending on the
surplus or deficit of techs. I do, however, think that there is nothing
wrong with the continuing education. I only wish that there were more
interesting seminars or the like to go to. I went and got my first credit already
(having only been registered since December) and it was on basic fixation.
Nothing that I didn't already know...
Just a few thoughts,
