I was told by my Nurse Manager at the hospital that I work for that once I pass my state boards I can no longer work as a PCT (but she did state that I may be able to work as a Monitor Tech).
Depending on your state, there is a very good chance that she is correct. I would still do your own research with your state board of nursing, because I wish that I originally did. I was told by my clinical director that I could not, other staff nurses, and even my nursing instructors that I could not, so I just assumed that it was true. I ended up finding out from my BON that I could have worked as a PCT after licensure, and my manager is bringing me back with open arms now lol. apparently the only person in the entire hospital who knew was the nurse recruiter! again, it varies by state, so you may not be able to, but I would look into more. good luck to ya!
