Technician or Technologist

“The best preparation for tomorrow is to do today’s work superbly well.”
William Osler

After viewing a recent Facebook comment that I loved about this topic it left me with something to think about…

First though, what’s the “technical” difference between the two? Whether it’s in the field of Neurodiagnostics or any other field – it’s education and credentials. For Neurodiagnostics it’s the difference between a Registered Technologist and a non-Registered Technician.

But it seems like it is more than just that…

In general, when we are passionate about what we do, we are proud. Our work is important and it’s important to note that the work it took to obtain our job title is valued…Things that are important to us tend to be things that we love doing.
Knowing that we are adding value and making a difference...

Being passionate about your work means we are always striving to do better. What that looks like for everyone is different but again important.

For a Technician it often means striving to improve their skills and preparing to pass their board exam. For a Technologist it might mean being a mentor for others.

Wherever you are today…let’s add value to our work. Right. Where.We. Are.
