My main question is can emt's work as pct's? I'm completing my prereqs and planning to obtain my bsn after my rn. I want to take the emt route because I'm fascinated with trauma. I'm not sure if emt and pct are two different certifications. I heard emts could work as pct's in a hospital. I'd like to gain experience by working in a hospital. Any suggestions on what to do? I really do want to take emt training and work in a hospital but I heard its pretty rare on NJ.
