Any Pct's in Georgia?

  1. 0
    I am currently changing careers from a teacher to a nurse. I want to transition into the medical field. I wanted to know what is the pay rate in Georgia? Also, is there a way to be cross trained as a unit secretary? I know it would be less than $30,000 but I am trying to get my foot in the door. Thanks for any information!

    PCT's make approx. $12 an hr in Atlanta, however it all depends on experience. You will have to get a job somewhere that may need cover for a Unit Secretary to be trained. But, it's possible. However, if you tell them up front that you may want to transition,they may not take you on. Good luck though.

    I know the dialysis companies hire PCT's and will train them for dialysis. I don't know how much it pays but have heard around $15 - as far as a unit secretary..I think training would depend on the the hospital you apply to.

    Okay, I will check that out. Would it better to do the CNA certification and apply for PCT jobs or should I find a PCT certification class?

    The dialysis clinics - as far as I know - provide all the training. As far as hospital or other non dialysis places I think it would depend on the place - I would think most hospitals w/the budget cuts would not offer the certification unless, possibly, you signed a contract. I'd suggest contacting the places you are interested in and asking but for sure Davita & Fresenious train.

    The Job descriptions looking for PCTS require PCT certification, from what I've seen. The CNA is a pre-req for the PCT program. You can't do a PCT program without your CNA. There are combo programs in which you do your CNA and then move into the PCT portion upon successful completion.
