Patient Care Technician Certification

nurse wit child in hospitalWith patient care technician certification you can make a start in a career in health care and feel a sense of achievement in your job. Patient care technicians (PCTs) work under doctors or nurses in clinic, hospital, home and nursing facility settings.  They perform routine tasks such as applying dressings to wounds, drawing blood, doing electrocardiograms (EKGs), and moving and caring for patients.

If you are interested in working in the medical industry, but you don’t have the time or the desire to become a doctor, you might consider getting a PCT certification. This page has further details of this field and the programs, both on-campus and by online and distance learning, that can lead to certification.
