Patient Care Technician

May 2020 Perth Amboy, NJ
“I really loved getting experience in patient care as a sophomore! I got to float between different floors and took care of everything from pediatric psychology patients in the Emergency Room to critical care patients in the Special Care Unit. The nurses and other techs were super friendly and willing to teach you things, and I really felt like I was making a difference in the community.”
