WHAT IS A CPCT CERTIFICATION?

The Certified Patient Care Technician certification is issued by the National Healthcareer Association(NHA).  The CPCT exam will test your knowledge on a variety of topics including, but not limited to: how to provide basic patient care, EKG readings and monitoring vital signs, and performing phlebotomy procedures.

WHAT DO PATIENT CARE TECHNICIANS DO?
Patient Care Technicians provide assistance and basic care to patients in hospital settings, physicians' offices, nursing homes, rehabilitation centers, and long-term care facilities. A Patient Care Technician checks patients' blood pressure, pulse, and temperature and assists doctors performing physical exams.  He/she also changes bedding, feeds, and helps patients perform self-care tasks like bathing and using the restroom.
