I'm trying to find an entry-level job in a hospital to work while I go to nursing school. Is a PCT the same as a CNA? If not, what is different between the two? Do I need any special certifications to be a PCT or a CNA (I haven't started nursing classes yet, just in pre-nursing)? Also, does anyone know what the salary range might be for either of the positions? I'm not looking forward to the pay cut I'll have to take in leaving my current job, but I feel the experience with be worth it.
