Capital Area Patient Care Technician (PCT)

If you have always wanted to work in a hospital setting, this may be your pick! The CA-PCT program rotates between two classrooms at the WTC and Sparrow Hospital. Students will also have experiences at McLaren Greater Lansing, Eaton Rapids Medical Center and Burcham Hills Retirement Community.  As part of this program, you will learn about different departments within a hospital setting, while earning a certification as a Patient Care Technician (PCT). Other certifications available as part of this program include; EKG, Phlebotomy Technician, and an optional Pharmacy Technician certification. Students will need to provide their own transportation to and from class at Sparrow each day.

A Patient Care Technician is an important job in the medical profession. They will provide help to patients in hospitals, doctor’s offices and nursing homes. PCT's work directly with physicians, nurses and other members of the health team to help patients recover and prepare for discharge. Some of the duties of a PCT might include: taking vital signs, specimen collections & phlebotomy, self-care assistance, EKG testing and interpretation and patient teaching. 

PCT’s are in demand and this can be a great entry-level opportunity as students navigate their future career plans in a healthcare setting. PCT’s average about $14-18 per hour here in Michigan.
