Hi, I got offered to work as a PCT on days for a med-surg unit in a hospital! I'm so happy. I just wanted to say everyone out there who is still looking for a CNA/PCT job, keep looking. Get experience-nursing home, volunteer, anything and let them know how much you really want to do this!

I'm so excited. I shadowed the unit today before my interview today and I really liked the unit and the staff there. I felt like I was already working there and I had only been there for 2 hours!

I've been working at a nursing home for close to 9 months now. What can I expect in Med-Surg? The patients seem very demanding here too.

You will probably like it more than a nursing home and be in a better position if you're furthering your education. Patient ratio should be lower also.

well, I noticed that most of the patients do alot for themselves. The patient ratio is somewhat similar to what I have at the nursing home-around 8-10. But it can all change because people come in and leave all in the same day.

you will most likely like working at the hospital better than the nursing home. Depending on what the patient is admitted for you can see a wide variety of diagnoses as well as variety of dependency on the staff. Good Luck with your new job!
