The difference between PCA and PCT at my hospital is a phlebotomy cert and an EKG cert for PCT's.I took classes at San jac college. PCT is really the same thing. That's what I am and all I have is my CNA. There's not a certification that says PCT or anything that's just what hospitals call it. Or PCA.
@cnoble, where are you located? From my experience, NJ is pretty easy for CNA positions. I applied to the hospital before I even finished my course and they gave me an offer contingent on passing my skills and written boards. It seems that experience in clinicals is enough around here. Good luck!
- 0Jan 8, '13 by becalee26One month after I had recieved my liscense I ended up with 3 job offers with no experience..I live in the northeast. I work on a sub acute rehab floor..we do have two LTC floors as well. I do plan on trying to get into a hospital but for those jobs around here, I need experience first. Don't give up and good luck...you will find something.

I had zero experience when i was dropping off resume/applications. I ended up at an assisted living facility for about 6 months then landed a job at short term/ltc center.Hi everyone.
I am entering into the medical field as a CNA. I am starting out with no experience as I am leaving another career field. I am finding that it is difficult to get a job with no experience. I am planning to attend school in Aprl but I would like to get my feet wet first. Any ideas?
Thanks and smiles,
