what were your jobs to fulfill your PCE?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to start building up my PCE hours.

I took a CNA class over a year ago and worked about two months with it. 

Also, im moving to a different state, and since my cna class was over a year ago, they will not let me test for GNA or test in the different state. I would have to go through the CNA class again. I do not have to time or the money to this. 

im trying to find another option for pce since i need to start asap. 

what are some of my options? 

and is phlebotomy and medical assistant a national certification or state certification like CNA?


any input would be appreciated

Physical therapy aide supplemented by being a volunteer interpreter at a free clinic for patient/doctor dialogue.

I was lucky with the PT Aide position and it doesn't require any certifications besides BLS for healthcare providers. I had hands-on patient experience.
