               Former Patient Care Technology students share their experiences:
               “The PCT program was a great stepping stone between my general education courses
               and nursing school.  This program provided me with the necessary skills to not only
               care for the patient’s physical needs, but to also become comfortable with patient
               contact and communication.  The classroom and clinical experience can’t be beat.”
               “The PCT class helped me tremendously to prepare for the ADN program.  Not only
               did it allow me to boost my GPA at the last minute, it gave me the opportunity to
               gain some experience with my basic skills.  I was able to care for patients for my
               first time and become more comfortable in the clinical setting which gave me the
               “upper hand” over most of the new ADN students.  I would highly recommend the
               PCT course to anyone who is considering a higher level career in the medical field.”
               “ I feel the PCT program laid the foundation for my nursing career and helped me by
               being able to work in the clinical setting prior to starting nursing school…I highly rec-
               ommend the PCT program.  It is a great step in the nursing pathway.”
