Congrats on taking the first step in your nursing career! I am a PCT on Med/Surg startintg my BSN in May, I enjoy my job but it can be very demanding. I LOVE the patient interaction very much, and I love learning things from my co-workers. I think I annoy the nurses sometimes because I love to watch everything they do!
The hardest part of the job to me is being on my feet constantly for 12 hours. I sit down for a 30 minute lunch break once a shift IF I have time, and I'm not used to that yet. The hospital is just such a busy and overwhelming place at times, but I love it.
I can't wait to be a nurse, but being a PCT is giving me valuable knowldege that I will carry with me through nursing school
, and throughout my career. I think it will also help me in nursing school becuse I will already be comfortable with patients.
Good luck in your journey to becoming a nurse
