Feature: The Integrity of the Sleep Medicine Field

By Alana Sherrill, BA, CCSH, RPSGT

I would just like to start out by telling everyone just how proud I am to be a Sleep Technologist! When I run into Trader Joe’s on my way home from work, I always proudly correct the cashier, “No, I’m not a nurse, I am a sleep tech,” even though I know this is going to open myself up to many more questions. To me, sleep has never been just a job but a career to invest in. Which is why I found myself joining organizations like California Sleep Society and the American Academy of Sleep Technologists, teaching at Orange Coast College’s Polysomnography program, and running for two terms on the board of directors of the California Sleep Society. I want to do my part to ensure the integrity of our Sleep Medicine field.
