Why become a Personal Care Attendant (PCA)?

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, we recognize that people are eager to get into healthcare to help other people and we are here to support that calling and provide training. Becoming a PCA will allow you an opportunity to make a real difference in the life of a person suffering from an illness, disease or disability – similar to what a Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) does. Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, Certified Nurse Aide (CNA) training is on hold, but PCA training will get you into healthcare!

What is a Personal Care Attendant (PCA)?
