Patient Care Technician Vs. CNA
I think this is a picture of Anjus Chiedozie.
He had written for Georgetown Research College News and The Washington Post's Express as well as writing at Demand Studios, while he is also the copy editor at a Newswire company.
According to Anjus Chiedozie's article for eHow.com called "Patient Care Technician Vs. CNA," PCT and CNA are interchangeable because they are "the same type of profession."
They are both extremely important in the nursing field and are both responsible for patients.
PCTs are responsible for drawing blood, taking vital signs and helping nurses and doctors conduct diagnostic tests and assist doctors as well as nurses, like a Medical Assistant (MA). CNAs are not required to do those things, but can be trained by their LPN or RN to do those tasks.
Psychiatric aides usually make around $27,000.
Home health aides make about $23,000.
So a PCT and CNA make around the same amount, usually around 30k.
