Michie Edens is working in the heart of the operating room at Danville Regional Medical Center (DRMC) after graduating from the ANU Danville, Virginia Campus and becoming a certified surgical technologist (CST).
She was working in retail when she enrolled at ANU to help her get started in a more rewarding career. “This program means so much to me,” Michie stated as she prepared to participate in the Danville Campus’s commencement ceremony. “[Program director] Jennifer Allen is a superb instructor and knows so much about the [surgical technology] career.”
During her program, Michie gained hands-on experience in the simulated OR at ANU and during her clinicals in area hospitals. “My main two clinics were a perfect fit for me. I am very thankful for the people I met and time I spent at DRMC and CRMH (Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital). They provide such a good and solid learning platform for students,” she shared. “I am very thankful for this program and recommend it to anyone looking into surgical technology as a career. The structure of the program is set up in an advantageous way for the students. It's not easy, but the students walk out as well educated techs.”
