STUDENTS TALK BACK:

The Glendale News-Press recently went to Glendale Career College and asked surgical technician students who will begin internships with local hospitals, “Are you nervous about going into a real operating room?”

“No. I would say that I am well prepared, because we’ve logistically practiced what we have to do.”

“Yes, I’m nervous and excited. It’s mixed emotions. No more books, no more fake people.”

“I’m a little bit nervous. We’ve been on field trips to see real-life surgeries. It’s not as bad as it seems.”
