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 greatly expanded in the past several years, and the role of this integral member of the health care team has recently been brought into much sharper focus.
This 135 hour program prepares professionals to collect blood specimens from clients for the purpose of laboratory analysis. Students will become familiar with all aspects related to blood collection and develop comprehensive skills to perform veni-punctures completely and safely. Classroom and lab work includes terminology, anatomy, and physiology; blood collection procedures; specimen hands on practice; and training in skills and techniques to perform puncture methods.
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.
