Patient Care Tech
ATTENTION: Patient Care Tech candidates–the price listed on this page for PCT is for the entire program, which is Certified Nurse Aide AND EKG/Phlebotomy Tech….IF YOU ARE ALREADY A CNA OR HAVE THAT CERTIFICATE YOU NEED ONLY TAKE THE EKG/PHLEBOTOMY TECH PROGRAM WITH US IN ORDER TO RECEIVE A PCT CERTIFICATION FROM ABC….GO TO THE EKG/P PAGE ON THIS WEBSITE FOR THE EKG/P PRICES……(beware of schools that list a low price for PCT; often they REQUIRE you to already be a CNA, so their “PCT” price is really their price for EKG/P only)
Our next Patient Care Technician WEEKEND Class begins on 5/3. The next Patient Care Tech WEEKDAY class begins on 3/10. Seats are limited. Book your spot today.
PATIENT CARE TECHNICIANS (formerly known as Nurse Technicians) complete a combination of the Certified Nurse Aide, EKG and Phlebotomy programs. Ask about the advantages of enrolling for all three at the same time.
Many graduating CNAs return to ABC Training Center to take the EKG and Phlebotomy courses in order to qualify as Patient Care Technicians. Some hospitals and clinics may refer to this position as “Nurse Assistant” or “Nurse Tech.”
At the completion of the program, students are provided with a one-day review and testing for national certification by the National Health Career Association. The review and exam are given at ABC.
It is possible to register for the complete, combined Patient Care Tech Program (CNA plus EKG/P) at the time of your enrollment. Graduates of the combined PCT program receive a single PCT certificate at the time of the completion of all three segments of the course: CNA, EKG and Phlebotomy.You may also take the programs separately. You may complete the CNA class first, then return to take the EKG/P course at any time after becoming a licensed CNA. You can also take the EKG/P course first, if you prefer.
New Course Offering to CNAs Trained Elsewhere
ABC Training Center has just been approved by the NY State Department of Education to issue a Patient Care Certificate to CNA graduates from any school in the State. The CNA graduates will present their certificates of completion and take the EKG/Phlebotomy program at ABC Training Center. ABC will then issue the PCT certificate at the successful completion of the program.
Subsequently, PCT graduates will be allowed to take the National Health Career Certification exam at ABC and will be allowed to attend the review class for this exam at no charge. National certification is a feather in the cap of a PCT graduate which puts you one step ahead of the pack. Our experience has shown us that candidates that have passed the certification exam and who interview at a hospital or other medical facility usually get preference over non-certified candidates.
So, if you are thinking of gaining new skills to create greater job opportunities, more income and more security for you and your family, look no further than ABC’s new, approved PCT program.
