The Phlebotomy program prepares students for employment as a phlebotomist. The program also prepares students for certification examinations of the American Society of Clinical Pathologists and the National Accrediting Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences.
To accomplish these goals, the program combines classroom instruction with lab work and clinical experience. Skill areas covered are vacuum collections, capillary skin punctures, butterfly needles, blood cultures and specimen collection on adults, children, and infants.
A group of up to 24 students completes the training as a cohort. Classes are tailored specifically to these students, who attend class for approximately 35 hours a week. The program is eligible for financial aid. For more information, see the "Program Information" link below.
