Students with a high school diploma, or equivalent, who are looking for an exciting opportunity to start a healthcare career or advance their skills, earn a better salary and have more job options in a changing work environment. Patient Care Technicians (PCTs) are valued members of many health care teams. They work in hospitals, rehabilitation settings, physician offices, clinics, and long-term care facilities. The PCT Program will expand the knowledge and skills of the nurse aide to care for patients with complex and sometimes acute diagnoses. Learn the art and science of drawing blood specimens, accurately recording an electrocardiogram, and working within a sterile field used for surgical procedures.
The patient care technician program is a series of courses, including Certified Nurse Aide, which prepares you to enter the health care profession and care for a variety of patient populations.
