A Patient Care Tech or PCT, works in a hospital or other medical related establishment. They work in almost every department in the hospital helping patients by meeting their needs as best they can. It takes someone special to become a PCT, you have to have a heart of gold and a passion for people.
A patient care technician also adopts the skills of a phlebotomy technician, EKG technician and patient care skills.
Most community colleges or Nursing and Healthcare institutions like the American Health Institute have a program that can train the student and make them eligible for National Certification Exam to be a certified patient care technician by National Certification Career Association.
When a person becomes certified as a PCT they can work in a variety of different places.
No matter what your future aspirations are, set goals for yourself. If you do not plan on continuing your education, set professional development goals such as joining the professional organization, reading journals, or anything else which would interest you. If you plan to continue in school, make a plan for that as well. It is fine for your goals to be somewhat flexible, however set a time frame initially to strive for completion.
We determine our own destiny with regards to our nursing career, both on an individual level as well as a much larger level. Being a great PCT is possible!
