How did you get your start doing patient care technician work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

Beth isreal was going to hire you with no experience as a pct or another job title... like patient care assistant or cna. I was going to go to allen school for training but i researched and found out that finanical aid wouldnt cover their expensive tution. I want to just do a pct course not cna and pct... any help thanks all.

nyp is hiring CNA it says just to have passed the training. PCA is a cna right? So why not just work as a cna in a hospital then pct. Seems the same. Any opinions thanks.

Where in South Carolina can you take this training? I had a CNA license for 2 years, but I let it expire, as I could not get in anywhere to get the needed hours for retention. If you have taken and passed the CNA will they hire you as a PCT? I went to Davita and Fresenius-both do on the job training, and I haven't been hired.
