The Phlebotomist is a vital member of the clinical laboratory team, whose main function is to obtain patient’s blood specimens by venipuncture and micro-collection. The field of Phlebotomy has significantly expanded in the past several years, and the role of this integral member of the healthcare team has recently come into much sharper focus.
This 133-hour program prepares professionals to sit for the National Phlebotomy exam. Students will learn how to collect blood specimens from clients for laboratory analysis. They will become familiar with all aspects related to blood collection and develop comprehensive skills to perform venipunctures completely and safely. Classroom and lab work includes terminology, anatomy and physiology, blood collection procedures, hands-on specimen practice, and training in skills and techniques to perform puncture methods. This course includes an outside clinical rotation.
Note: There is an outside clinical rotation for this program requiring scrub attire, immunizations, and background check. Additionally, this program will prepare students to sit for the National Phlebotomy exam.
