    What's the difference between a cna, a patient care technician and a resident care associate? And what in the world is a Qmap?

    Around here a PCT works at the hospital and there are different levels depending on how much training you've had. You have to have your CNA first, and the additional training to become a PCT (phlebotomy, DCing IVs, catheters, etc.) is provided by the hospital.

    I don't know what a resident care associate is but if I had to guess I'd say it's a job where no CNA training is required, like in some assisted living places.

    It's funny I forgot I asked this question, and they actually talked about it on my first day of school today. Thank you anyways!
