What hours do you work during the day?
I will be going to school for this next year to get my certificate. I would like an idea of what the work schedule would be like once I get a EKG Technician job.
No advertisements please. I do not click on unknown links.
Real answers only please. Thank you.
Im considering going to school to learn how to be either an EKG Technician or a Laboratory Technician, what are some schools in georgia, around the Atlanta area that offer these programs, what is the entry level salary for these jobs, and as you get more training in one of these fields what is the salary increase?
I was just wondering because i know cardiac techs make more but they do the same thing an EKG tech does . The hierarchy is......
Are Cardiac Techs in demand and whats the point of being an EKG tech when cardiac techs make more. How much will i be making a every two weeks if I go to school to become a Cardiac tech?
I am currently a ceritfied clinical medical assistant EKG & phlebotomy technician since 2008 but have yet to land a job. What should I do?
I am unsure which program to take. I want to work in a doctors office and help people, which one makes more? Which job do you know is easier to get in this economy? Any helpful tips? If you or anyone you know are in any of these jobs, can you explain anything the job requires besides the obvious? Thanks!
~I would take one of these programs in a tech school, not at a real college. However, I would get a certification.
I'm going to quit college, to go get my certification in one of these fields, and I'm unsure which. Any help?
My husband and I have been talking lately about relocating from the U.S. to Canada. What is a good place in Canada for a couple of born and raised Americans to live in? How is the job market out there? Are the wages decent? I know taxes are higher for the universal health care you guys have, but are wages pretty decent? When/if we move out there, I will be an EKG Technician, and my husband is a computer professional, if that helps at all. Thanks for the information :)
Oh yeah, what is the housing market look like as well?
I have started a clerical-administrative job in healthcare. I would like to do more hands-on work than administrative, and I want to make at least 12.00 per hour.
Is there really a dufference between the two jobs such as the required duties, and also is there difference in pay? What would employers prefer a CNA or a PCT.
Here is my initial list:
Feel free to ADD to the list with details. Points go to the most thorough list!
I.E run 1.5 miles in 11 minutes, swim 500 meters in 14 minutes I want to know what im getting myself into. Any physical restrictions such as allergies? color vision? any information would be greatly appreciated.
Or is all they do, wire you up and take your electrocardiogram, and then the electrphysiologist or cardiologist interprets the rhythm ?
And does anyone know if it is hard to get a job in that field in the Chicagoland area?? Anyone that works in a hospital or in that field?? I know it is a lot of questions...Thanx guys
And which of the above are more respected ?
out of the 3 which is best to be?
I'm 21, female, I live in New York. To keep it short I'll say this, I am not in school at the moment, I took a 4 month program as a patient care technician (phlebotomy, CNA, ekg certification) because I wanted to have a stable job in the meantime to help myself out a little.
I do plan on going back to school once I save up enough to be able to work a little less and focus more on studying, but I am trying to look into other fields in health care that are not nursing.
I have nothing against nursing, but it's not what I'd like to do. To be honest things like physical therapy, something that has to do with machines (x-rays, MRI, Sonography,), massages, etc. call my attention more than nursing.
But I also want to make sure I choose something that besides liking it I can also depend on when it comes to job-demand.
I was looking into medical sonography schools here in New York, but somewhere I read someone say the demand for these jobs aren't many, is this true?
What about X-ray techs? Is it true these are low on job openings as well? What other ares are there? I know there has to be areas I have not known or thought of.
Please some recommendations may be very helpful.
I am 17 almost 18 years old next month. Im planning to use my EKG tech certificate to apply at a hospital. I've gotten arrested few times a while back. since every work site has to do background check, would my misdemeanors affect me from getting a job or a career in the future?
I already graduated from college but with a bachelor's in psychology. At this point, what kind of degree should I major in and what kind of experience should I gain to become an electrocardiologist?
In addition to rate of pay, what are the job responsibilities and typical level of education required?
I am unsure which program to take. I want to work in a doctors office and help people, which one makes more? Which job do you know is easier to get in this economy? Any helpful tips? Thanks.
if you or anyone you know are in any of these jobs, can you explain anything the job requires besides the obvious?
or physcial therapy aid?
I am really good at the human body studies and stuff and i would like to persue a job in that field but i cant handle looking at blood or bones out of place..HELP!
I was originally looking into Phlebotomy Certification, but I talked with a local training center and they said their program is on hold because they were having trouble finding externships/good post-certification jobs for their students. What is another Medical Certificate I could get besides that and CNA?
