Patient Care Technician Schools and Home Health Aide Training Programs

A patient-focused health care career without four years of medical school is a real option for you -- as a patient care technician. Also known as patient care assistants, nurse aides or nurse techs, these caregivers are found in a wide range of medical specialties. From behavioral health to rehabilitation, psychiatry to clinical support, you can make a difference in your community as you hone a highly marketable set of career skills.

Specializations for Nurse Aides or Patient Care Technicians

As a patient care tech, you could first pursue core training and then focus on an area that matches your interests. Nurse aides or patient care technicians might perform different functions in different workplaces or fields. Here are some examples.

Hospitals: Take vital signs, observe and report treatment information, collect specimens for medical tests, and assist with dietary procedures such as fluid intake and meal coordination.

Rehabilitation: Conduct range of motion exercises, interview patients concerning recovery protocols, and assist therapists in adjusting exercise regimens.

Home health care: Work with patients and families as they adjust to challenges related to care, recovery and quality of life issues.

Geriatric care: Care for the elderly in settings such as nursing homes, assisting with personal hygiene, managing prescriptions, and offering comfort and support to patients' family members.
