Patient Care Technician Skills

Patient Care Technicians help people every day. When you’re making the world a better place, you can really feel good about your career. What are the Patient Care Technician skills you’ll need to get started in this exciting career?

Patience. Not all patients are patient – so you’ll need to be. When you’re working with people nervous about their health or the elderly, sometimes being polite isn’t their first concern. You’ll need to be able to keep your cool and remain professional even if your patient isn’t.

Social skills. If you’re good at working with people, you already have one of the critical Patient Care Technician skills. Putting a smile on an apprehensive patient can make their day, so it really helps if you have good people skills.

Organization and multi-tasking skills. Healthcare facilities can be hectic at times. That’s why it is so important for a Patient Care Technician to be organized and skilled when it comes to multi-tasking.
