Direct/Indirect Patient Care Experience

For the purpose of selection direct patient care is defined as someone who provides for Assisted Daily Living (ADLs) (ie bath and vital signs) in a hospital or nursing home. Indirect patient care is defined as someone who draws blood or gives respiratory treatments in a hospital, nursing home or clinic. Examples for direct patient care are Nurse’s Aid (CNA) or EMT. Examples of indirect patient care are Phlebotomists, Medical Technicians and RTs.

Training for some of these professions such as Nursing Assistant Certified and Phlebotomist may be done through Continuing Nursing Education at Bellevue College. Many other community and technical colleges in the area also offer medical programs. For a complete listing, visit the College Program Search page on the Washington State Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) site.
