You are reading page 3 of What are PCT/PCA pay rates in your area?. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I just posted mine and hadn't seen yours yet :sorry: Mine is low, because cost of living, etc. is lower where I live. That seems awfully short-changed in NY. I hope things work out for you, and hopefully with experience you will find a position with better pay.

I'm in Jacksonville, Florida and make $12.40 an hour plus my 15% shift differential (I work 7p-7a) so comes out to $14.26. I was offered a job at Mayo Clinic, but the pay is significantly less there then at my current hospital. I believe they told be starting was 11.99.

Where I work at I am known as a Patient Service Associate and our job is a union job. The first three months at my particular hospital is $14.12 then once you pass the probation period (God willing you do) then you are tapped out at $14.82.

Now the other people in my class get paid on average $16.00 or more because they work at night and at bigger hospitals

NYC at a major hospital is 15-18 starting. Night differ 1-2 dollars. I'm a PCA and I do EKG and phlebotomy. It depends on the hospital if they train you for it.

Yeah most hospitals in NJ/NYC pay more than what I am getting paid but hey I can live with it. I am on day shifts so I wont see any differential until I work a major holiday and get time and a half.

Just curious as a PCA what exactly do you do in phlebotomy and EKG? What would they need you for to set up and clean up afters? Do you do any of the procedures and are you certified as a phlebotomist because I wanted to do that
