I am trying to get some career advice. I have just finished my PhD in Neuroscience and am applying to PA programs. In the meantime, I would like to get a job in a hospital setting, but I have very little experience. To get a PCA job, do I need to get certified? Is a PCA job what I should go after or should I go for a CNA? Thanks in advance.
I think it's different in different states, but for me, I took a CNA course and got a job as a PCA. I would check out the requirements for a PCA or CNA job where you would be applying in order to see what your mode of study/preparation should be.
