My employer (and I'm sure many others, as well) considers PCTs a part of the nursing team. Our hospital has very few (if any) LPNs, and we work under the direct supervision of the RNs. Certainly, we're not licensed or registered, but so many of the questions, concerns and conversations here at A.N. are relevant to us as well.
I think it would be really great to have a sub-forum for those of us who would like to discuss specific issues of concern as PCTs/PCAs/Nursing Techs, so that we can provide the best patient care we can, as well as contributing more meaningfully to the nursing team as a whole.
Thank you for all the great information on this board...it has answered many questions I've had, and has been a great source of support. I hope this suggestion will help to make it even more welcoming to those members in positions similar to mine.
Print and share with friends and family.
Compliments of allnurses.com.

- Apr 26, '10 by Urban_DurgaI was able to get into the forum by clicking on the link you posted above, but I can't find it starting from the home page. Is it under in the 'General' section? If not, where can I find it? I had been looking for a sub-forum like this since joining, but could never find anything. Where is it hiding?
Thanks very much for the link!
