  4. Will PCT help me get an RN job in the future?

  7. Learning lab results
    Labs to me still feel like a never ending black hole. Getting those connections to the real world is a great first step to understanding them. Although I'd rather not be doing labs on myself. :bag:

  13. Should I go to pct school or lpn school?
    Hospitals in my area rarely hire lpn's if ever. Lpn mainly go into nursing homes. The PCT program will more likely get you in the hospital setting either as a PCT, CNA or monitor tech and phelbotomy...
