    What is the difference between PCT and CNA?

    I was under the impression PCT's replaced the CNA in the hospitals? PCT's have a lil more "schooling" phlebotomy... EKG...

    CNA or NOT?

    I was under the impression that cnas made 8-12 too? My friend makes 14$ as a cna in NY tho.... im using the cna as a stepping stone ONLY.... have no intentions of workin in a nursing home..,None! I do personal care and Adls in a grouphome setting for 4 individuals MR/DD..have done this kinda work for 20 yrs...(human svs)....just want the certification cna...so i can do med tech at say a hospital... thanks for your input! yea.., i will b studying for thenTEAS in the meantime.......

    CNA or NOT?

    Recently decided to do a CNA program here in VA...came to this decision because 2 of the LPN programs I am interested in are no longer accepting apps for 2012:cry:...I am a DSA Direct Care Associate in a group home and AMAP certified... Medication Administration Certified... I can pass meds in a group home setting only... took a 40hr class..ok..been contemplating become a LPN for mos! never wanted to do the CNA cause i thought there was NO money in it? Well I asked around and a few ppl told me CNA's make 12-15/hr Reely? Ok I could live off that while working towards my LPN? For those of you who are CNA's is it physically demanding the way some ppl say? i FOUND A CNA program in Chesterfield for 950 6 weeks? is that reasonable? my plans are to also to take the boards for MED tECH.. I have worked 2 jobs for as long as I can remember..I just wanna work ONE job. I just want some honest feedback on what I can expect once I become a CNA. Thanks Folks!
  15. DONT be discouraged...at community colleges they require you do pre-reqs... takes a lil longer but Ive been told its not so badd! Im older Im older (43) I wont g that route only because TIME is of the essence... will probably end up going to a Specialize school... where most LPN programs are done full time in about 14 mos...
