The Association of Surgical Assistants and the National Surgical Assistant Association have launched the National Registry of Surgical Assistants website (NRSA). It is the only combined registry for more than 4,000 credentialed surgical assistants holding a nationally recognized certification in the profession
The goal of this site is to expedite the verification of credentials held by the Certified Surgical First Assistant (CSFA) and the Certified Surgical Assistant (CSA). Both organizations anticipate that hospitals, surgery centers and even legislative bodies will appreciate the efficiency provided by this jointly sponsored resource
In the future, more features will be offered on the site to benefit ASA and NSAA members and to provide a framework for greater collaborative efforts to advance the profession of surgical assisting.
