Patient Care Technician program accepting applications

The Patient Care Technician (PCT) program at North Florida Community College announces the opening of its application period for Fall Term 2013. Now is the time to enroll and take care of application, testing and program entrance requirements. Classes begin Aug. 26 and the deadline to apply for admission is June 1.

NFCC’s PCT program prepares students to provide direct patient care in a variety of healthcare environments. PCT curriculum also includes the Home Health Aid component and current Labor Market statistics report that the Home Health Aid has the largest percent of projected growth in health care support occupations through 2019.

While working under the supervision of a registered nurse, patient care technicians often have more contact with patients than any other healthcare team member. Students receive additional training as assistants in the care of the elderly, physical and respiratory therapy and may also receive additional training in performance of electrocardiograms and phlebotomy. Most PCT’s seek certification as a certified nursing assistant (CNA). Graduates may also apply to take a national certification examination to become certified patient care technician.

In order to be considered for admission into NFCC’s PCT program, individuals must have a high school diploma or GED and be at least 18-years-old. Students are required to complete the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) prior to making application to enter the program. The TABE is given regularly at the NFCC campus and may be scheduled by calling (850) 973-9451.

Nursing and Allied Health staff and faculty are available to help prospective students through the enrollment process; contact Debbie Bass at (850) 973-1662 or bassd@nfcc.edu. More details about NFCC’s Allied Health programs and entrance requirements are available at www.nfcc.edu/programs-of-study. Financial aid and scholarships may be available to qualified students.
