“I am on the Pre-Med track and this was a great way to get acquainted with nurses, anesthesiologists, doctors, and more. As a PCA, it was my job to give the utmost care to patients. Part of my job was to take patients' vitals, change patients, help them with personal needs, document patient data, and more. It was nice to get the hands-on experience with the patients and nurses, and something I am definitely looking forward to in my career.”
