Course Description:

The Phlebotomy course is 160 hours (40 hours classroom, 120 hours clinical) that prepares students to demonstrate cognitive, psychomotor, and affective competencies in the role of a certified phlebotomy technician, and as a member of the healthcare team. This course will teach the theory and practice of phlebotomy procedures, including proper collection techniques, special collections, processing and transporting specimens, and safety and compliance regulations. Certified phlebotomy technicians draw blood specimens from patients in hospitals, blood centers, or similar facilities, for analysis or other medical purposes. They also evaluate patients for their ability to withstand venipuncture procedures, explain venipuncture procedures and answer patient questions, perform basic point of care testing such as checking blood glucose levels, and prepare blood, urine, and other body fluid specimens for testing, according to established standards. One hundred (100) hours of hands on clinical training and practicum experiences will provide students the opportunity to make at least 100 successful unaided blood collections, including venipunctures and skin punctures. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be eligible to sit for the phlebotomy technician certification (CPT) examination with the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).  ** Clinical hours will vary based upon Clinical Facilities availability.*Course cost does not include Textbook and Uniform (Maroon Scrubs-solid without prints/white shoes).
