I worked as a Level 3 ED tech in NYS, about 9yrs ago, my base was $13.50 not including differentials and I worked ON w/ my hourly at close to $15 give/take.

Local Catholic hospital pays 12.50/hr for PCT's. Differential is +1.25 for eve and +1.75 for night. +.50 for weekend shifts. This is a level 2 trauma center

Hospital a mile down the road pays around 16 and has a nursing union. Not a trauma center.

I'm a little disappointed, I have read so many decent well-paid PCT's on here but here in New York I just started my CNA 4 day internship and I was lucky enough to land on a floor where the nurses were very helpful and we got to talk a lot about the field. Before I left for home I was able to ask one of the CNA's more about the job because I wanted an idea of what the pay was like (since I was able to see and experience how tough being a CNA can be).

She told me "You start off with $8/hr maybe $9 and if you're lucky maybe even $10". I told her I did the ekg and phlebotomy which will mean I'd be a PCT. Her response was the same, told me that without any experience being a PCT doesn't matter, I'd get paid the same.

I had been researching online for a good while now and I was sure that $12/hr would be the least to start off with as a PCT in NY.

I am attending the Jewish Home Hospital in the Bronx. So maybe this was just this CNA's experience according to the location.

All I have to say is that with just one day of hands on "practice" I was able to experience that it's a tough job at times, $8/hr in NYC doesn't make up for the hard work.
