Productive work day, lots of hands on training
Patient Care Technician (Current Employee) – Scottsdale, AZ – March 31, 2018
A typical day at work is very busy with much hustle and bustle. Having multiple patients if not the entire floor assigned to you at times. Usually, work is fast paced and very hands on. On occasion anyone from nurses to doctors will give you extra training and advice on how their jobs work to further your knowledge in medicine provided the time allows to do so. Being a patient care tech gives you a good look on how a hospital operates and should also help you get an idea of what path in the medical field you want to follow, and how to get there. Work is work, it's gonna get rough and chaotic at times, but the satisfaction of helping and tending to patients who need help on top of the knowledge you gain compensates in full.
Knowledge and skill refinement
Long hours, relatively low pay.
