You must be a BCLS certified tech and you must have been employed for at least one year as a surgical technician. You also must have a high school diploma or have taken and passed the GED.

It will be your task to prepare operating rooms for surgical procedures in a timely manner. You will be part of a team that will see you performing additional assignments when the OR’s workload or your team’s area of specialty requires them.


You’ll be held accountable for your performance and will complete your duties under the direct supervision of a registered nurse circulator. You also may – when applicable – be responsible for delegating and supervising tasks in order to ensure optimum patient care.

If you love wild places, if you like your weather hot (usually), if mesas and dramatic desert and mountain vistas are what you crave, then New Mexico is the place for you.

Six national forests are located in New Mexico (Carson, Cibola, Lincoln, Santa Fe, the Gila and the Gila National Monument). The Santa Fe Historic Trail runs through part of the state; the Aztec National Ruins are here, as is the Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument and the White Sands National Monument.

Most people think that New Mexico is mostly low desert, but the state has many forests and several mountains that become snow covered in winter. These mountains also are home to some great ski resorts.

In fact, perhaps one of the absolute best things about New Mexico is the opportunity to enjoy outdoor activities all year. The state’s terrain encompasses six of the planet’s seven life zones, and so you can joy a bit of all climates – from the heat of the desert, the warm winds of the Mediterranean, the coolness of the forest, the chill of a mountain top, and more.

From the annual Albuquerque Balloon Festival to the White Sands International Film Festival, there are plenty of cultural and outdoor activities to enjoy during your New Mexico assignment.
