I received a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing in 2004. I spent much of my nursing career as a Labor & Delivery Nurse. I found myself fascinated by the inner workings of the human body and once I found out that nurses could train to become Assistants in surgery, I jumped at the chance! I went on to receive additional training to become a Registered Nurse First Assistant and started assisting in surgery.

I learned how to do surgery on my patients. All providers practice on patients, however we all know that is not the best way to train.


In every area of my career, I've witnessed unnecessary patient injuries that could've been prevented with proper training and education. My solution to make our healthcare system better is simple; providing on demand training & education so anyone can deliver high quality care, anywhere! 


April Snipes, Founder of The Surgery Studio


At The Surgery Studio, you have permission to think.

We all want high quality healthcare to be the standard; no matter who you are, or where you live. How we get there is by redefining who is in charge. It is your life, your health, and your well being on the line.


We want to create a space where traditional and non-traditional forms of medicine & wellness education can coexist. 


We can only fix problems that we aren't afraid to acknowledge & understand.  So we are calling on individual communities to design solutions that are effective, affordable, and inclusive. Let's learn from and lean on one another.


We invite you to attend virtual classes. Pop up skills labs, workshops, and community events. They will empower and enable you to take control of your life, health, and wellbeing.


Remember; since it's your life, you decide.
