Have you considered the professional Patient Care Technician? If so then you are in good company. Patient care technicians wear many hats, such as performing electrocardiograms (EKG’s), drawing blood (venipuncture), setting up IV’s, making a patient’s bed, performing oral care, denture care, peri-care, emptying and measuring a urine drainage bag (Foley Catheter), setting up feeding tubes, passing medications and charting to name just a few of their duties.
Phlebotomy Career Training’s new Patient Care Technician program covers all these disciplines. For a limited time only the behavioral health technician certification is also included in this course tuition price.
Because those with mental illness are not just found in the mental health ward, they are everywhere in the medical field. There has not been enough attention to the care of the mentally ill. Though some health care providers do not feel that mental health should be a subject of patient care, they are wrong, because more patient’s need mental health counseling then some would think.
It is this extra attention to patient assessment that makes a good patient care technician.
Having the extra certification of mental health technician also opens up more employment opportunities for the graduate. Additionally, most behavioral health centers want their mental health technicians to possess Patient Care Skills.

Where do Patient Care Technicians work?
Patient care technicians work in hospitals, emergency rooms, physician offices, urgent cares, cardiac care unit, intensive care unit and with the physicians on homecare rounds.

The expected salary of Patient Care Technicians is between $40,000 to $50,000 yearly and the growth of the profession is expected to increase in demand exponentially due to the shortage of nurses.
