Question by terryc84: What is the difference between a CNA, MA, and a PCT?
What are the requirements (from the state, I live in Illinois) to perform each of these jobs, and what are the differences in teh actual positions? It seems they are used interchangably some times?
Answer by SAMMY
cna is a cert. nurses aide> the work to floor do the little things nurses don’t want too
CMA is a cert. medication aide or Tech in missouri> they pass meds to petients and call in orders to pharmacy
(this is what I do)
pct? never heard it maybe patient care tech same cna? just for a hospital or in home care?
they are not inchangable, you have to takes courses for these certifications
