I work with many student nurses and PCTs/PSPs in the ED. Students make $13.00/hr. they do the same job of a PCT/PSP. No difference. The PCT/PSP makes about 9-10/hr and some change. They do EKGs, draw blood with butterflies, transport, insert catheters, and lots and lots of VS. The nurses are all very nice to them. There isn't a lot of time to study while at work, but lots try. The work load seems very manageable
