Hi Tanisha,

I think the question might be...who's requirements are you referring to.
I see by the header you reference NY state.  I see by your signature
that you are in Indiana.  I am not aware of any CAP reg referencing this
and, to my knowledge most labs have their own job descriptions written
with their own qualifications listed.  You say "...right now I'm being
told..." so again, by who (whom).

You also reference a BA, I'm assuming this means BS or BAS works as
well.  I personally know very good supervisors that are associate
degreed and hold HTs.  I also know supervisors that have bachelor's
degrees and I wouldn't necessarily say that they are any better because
of it, however I think that's a "truism" across a lot of occupations.

Just trying to understand your question.

Have a good day.

Hi Histonetters:

Our HR/QA team is struggling to understand exactly what the requirements
are for Histology Technicians/Technologists to become laboratory
supervisor. It is my understanding that the requirements are not exactly
the same as those for the traditional clinical lab. And until recently,
the regulations were vague regarding our field. 

Right now, I am being told that to be supervisor requires a BA degree
and 6 years of experience subsequent to receiving that degree. I am not
sure that is accurate. 

If anyone has any information they can share, I would greatly appreciate
