These technicians are sometimes known as hospital attendants, nurse assistants and nurse aides, depending on the facility that they work in. Students who are studying to become a patient care assistant technician will find courses in medical ethics and training, as well as first aid and CPR. They will learn to check vitals and have practical experience to help them demonstrate competency to be certified in their position.
