« back to classes page
Phlebotomists work directly with patients.  Medical laboratories depend on the phlebotomy technician to collect quality laboratory results.  To do this, the phlebotomy technician must create an atmosphere of trust and confidence with patients while drawing blood specimens in a skillful, safe, and reliable manner.  This course introduces basic anatomy, physiology, components of health care delivery, and clinical laboratory structure.  It teaches techniques of specimen collection, specimen handling, and patient interactions.  The course also includes prep for the National Health Association certification exam (NHA Phlebotomy Certification).

Students learn techniques of specimen collection, specimen handling, and patient interactions. The course includes both lecture and lab, as well as clinical experiences in local health care facilities. Clinical hours are generally between the hours of 6 a.m. - 5 p.m. two days per week but may vary depending on the facility.  This course meets the requirements for ASCP Phlebotomy Technician (PBT) certification which can be pursued by the student on their own. Students will be registered NHA Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) certification.  One NHA  exam is included and provided to students near the end of class.  The phlebotomy program runs from January 17 to March 21, followed by review period.  Certification Testing will be scheduled prior to the end of the semester.
