Specializes in ER, progressive care. Has 7 years experience.

A lot of hospitals do their own training for companion aides or PCT's, but maybe New York is different. Have you looked into the qualifications at local hospitals in your area? Generally to be a PCT you have to be a nursing student, at least that is how it was in Ohio. They expected us to have knowledge on patient care from nursing school, from a PCT standpoint, that is. I remember my orientation being 1 day, and that was just to go over policies/procedures and how to use the Accucheck machine.
