A group of patient care technicians from the District of Columbia Health Care Academy’s Career and Technical Center program recently earned national certification through the National Association of Healthcare Professionals. Patient care technicians play a crucial role in providing direct patient care under the supervision of healthcare professionals, performing tasks such as monitoring vital signs, assisting with daily activities, collecting specimens, and providing support to patients and their families.

The students who earned this certification include Lexi Kelly, Kirstin Reckner, Emma Julian, Abby Passmore, Peyton Swanson, Ale Keyes, Megan Moore, Camryn Martin, Alyssa Franz, Arianna Gonzalez, Cheyenne Schwartz and Mara Morris. These students have completed extensive training and demonstrated proficiency in their duties.

Pam Dawson, RN and Health Academy instructor praised the students for their dedication and success in earning this certification. She emphasized the competitive advantage that national certification brings to students regardless of whether they choose to enter the workforce or pursue higher education. Ms. Dawson is proud of her students’ achievements and looks forward to seeing the positive impact they will have on future patients.
