PATIENT CARE TECHNOLOGY CERTIFICATE

 

This one semester certificate program is designed to educate and train individuals to function as nursing support personnel who are above the level of nursing assistant but below the level requiring licensure. The major focus is the role of the PCT in the hospital setting.

This program is NOT designed to transfer.

NOTE: Criminal history MAY disqualify individuals from obtaining or maintaining employment and/or certification as a nursing assistant.

Before hiring a Certified Nurse Aide, employers in a regulated faculty/agency are required to check if an applicant is employable, meaning they are not listed on the Employee Misconduct Registry, have not been revoked on the Nurse Aide Registry, or do not have a criminal conviction that is listed as an automatic bar to employment in the Health and Safety Code Chapter 250 found at: http://www.statutes.legis.state.tx.us/Docs/HS/htm/HS.250.htm.
