Providing Healthcare Professionals Greater Access to Certification Testing


The National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting (NBSTSA) needed to certify Surgical Technologists and Surgical First Assistants to ensure candidates meet the national standard and have acquired the mandated theoretical and practical knowledge. With over 12,000 candidates each year from all corners of the US, the NBSTSA needed to create rigorous tests that were geographically accessible.


High-Caliber Test Development & Creative Solutions

PSI powers NBSTSA certifications, underpinned by robust job analysis to ensure the right skills are examined, and annual test development guarantees rigorous and relevant exams. Secure testing is provided via both PSI Test Centers and a unique on-campus proctored testing solution.

What PSI brings to the table is their work with so many other professions … anything we come up with to throw at PSI, there’s someone on their staff that already has an answer. That broad base of experience is really invaluable to us.
