Course description

The Phlebotomy program consists of 35 hours of class time.  Class will meet 2 times a week for 5 weeks. One day for 4 hours and a second day for 3 hours.  This program is designed for those students looking to become a phlebotomy technician.

The class time will be split into two portions, lecture and practicum.  The first half of class time will be lecture.  The lecture will cover all aspects of phlebotomy from arm anatomy and blood components to body systems and special collections.  The 2nd half of the class will be designated as practicum or phlebotomy practice time.  During the practicum the students will complete blood draws and finger sticks.  Students will perform these blood draws and finger sticks on one another while under the direct supervision of the instructor.

No blood draw will ever be done without the instructor watching and coaching throughout the entire process.  It is this individual attention that we feel helps the student to hone their skills as a competent phlebotomist. 

The practicum will focus on all of the aspects of the clinical laboratory.  During the practicum  students will learn to properly identify patients and review lab requisitions a wells as how to handle and process laboratory specimens.   Students will learn to use and operate a centrifuge and point of care machines.  

The program also includes a 2 year certification through the American Red Cross in Basic Life Support for Healthcare Providers in Adult/Child/Infant CPR and AED.  

There will be 3 written quizzes, 1 written final and 1 venipuncture and finger stick final.  The quizzes and final exams are to test the student’s phlebotomy knowledge and clinical phlebotomy skills.  Students must have a grade of “C” 70% or higher to pass the class.

Once the student has successfully completed the Phlebotomy course they will earn a certificate of completion.  Successful completion of the Phlebotomy course meets the eligibility requirements to take the national phlebotomy certification exam through the National Healthcareers Association (NHA). The exam cost is included in the program tuition.
