Phlebotomy Technician Program
Phlebotomy Technician Program
What is an Phlebotomy Technician?
A Phlebotomy Technician is an important member of the clinical laboratory team, drawing blood from patients, transporting the blood specimens to the laboratory to prepare for testing, and entering patient data into computer systems.
This accelerated course prepares students for entry-level competencies as phlebotomist in hospitals, clinics, blood banks, and other healthcare settings. Students will develop skills in performing phlebotomy procedures during on-campus training followed by offsite clinical externships. Our graduates will be trained to collect, transport, handle and process blood and other specimens for laboratory analysis using venipuncture, and micro-collection techniques.
In addition, our students will be able to identify and select equipment, supplies and additives used in blood collection and understand factors that affect specimen collection procedures and test results.
This course is comprised of three components:
- 80 hours Lecture
- 15 hours Lab
- 40/100 hours Clinical based on clinical hours rotation
- Successful completion of all three course components are required to graduate.
- Lab dates and hours, and clinical locations will be given in the beginning of class to ensure ample time to inform employers of this training. Time off from work may be required.
This course prepares you to take the national certification exams issued by the National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT) and/or the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).
