    Techs can apply after RN fundamentals , they have a check off list just like a new grad. for caths, baths, etc. Some hospitals offer classes one or two half days a week. Frankly I love Nurse techs they seem to take the job a bit more seriously than some CNA's. But then I'm generalizing here.

    I wanted to bump this thread because I will be finished with Fundamentals this spring, and I'm going to try to be hired on as a Tech at either Baptist, Lexington or Palmetto Richland (or anywhere else that is hiring in the Columbia area!)...

    Does anyone know what the current pay is for any of these hospitals for nurse techs?
    Do you like being a tech? Any opinions concerning which hospitals are the best to work for?
    Any tips that might help me/new hires be more prepared to be a good tech?
