PATIENT CARE TECHNICIAN

This 160-hour, 12 - week certification program will provide the academic and practical knowledge that is involved in becoming a Patient Care Assistant. The most important attributes that a student can possess are a desire to share their healing spirit and the need to provide care in a compassionate manner.


A PCT/A’s responsibilities include answering patient calls, serving meals, making beds and bathing patients. A PCT/A may also take patient temperatures, pulse rate, respiration rate and blood pressure. In a hospital setting, they may assist the registered nurse in preparation of a client's admission. 


As an intuitive caregiver, one of the most significant tasks a PCT/A performs is regular tracking of a patient’s physical, emotional or mental health and reporting, any major changes to higher medical staff.


 A PCT/A must be able to stay calm under stressful circumstances which may, arise, and be able to assist with CPR
