RE: [Histonet] A question about HT licensure in various states --whichones require it?
|From:||"Christine Tambasco" |
New York does not require registry with the ASCP-although some
hospitals or labs prefer it. September 1st of this year New York is
requiring state licensure from New York. The histology license is
under the clinical laboratory technologist or clinical laboratory
technician license. It is not specific to just histology. The only
license that is specific is CYTOLOGY. So in New York State, to
practice histology you must have a license for either the 2 yr degree
clinical laboratoy technician or 4 year degree clinical laboratory
technologist. They are just implementing and many people will be
grandfathered, but after this you will need to take an exam to obtain
your license. Hope this helps.
