The Patient Care Technician (PCT) Certificate Program is an exciting opportunity for you to start your healthcare career or advance your skills, earn a better salary and have more job options in a changing work environment. PCT's are valued members of many health care teams. They work in hospitals, rehabilitation settings, physician offices, clinics, and long-term care facilities. The PCT 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.
