PCT Aren’t trained enough.They want you to do what a RN does, though they clearly know your not, and they certainly don’t come close to paying you like one. But that’s how they work there, they get their employees to just do more, and pay less. They see 59-80 pts a day, if not more. No breaks, no sitting allowed, get ready to never see your family again, once you start full time. Life work balance is very bad.
