Ok, I'm not real sure where to put this, so I'm just putting it here in the general area. I've applied for a position at a local hospital as a "Patient Care Technician" on night shift so that I can work while I'm in school. (Separating/divorcing from husband...I need an income.) I remember from delivering my children at this same hospital that the PCTs on the PP floor took my vitals, helped me into the shower, changed my linens, checked/changed my c-section dressings, etc. The opening I'm applying for is on a med/surg floor, so I reckon it will be similar to my post-c/s care. Does anyone here have a clue as to what other duties I might expect? What kind of pay scale I might be offered? Will night shift be "quieter" than days? Is this similar to a CNA-type thing? I *do* know that the hospital will train me for this position. My interview is Tuesday.
