Overview of Program
Phlebotomy technicians draw quality blood samples from patients or blood donors and prepare those specimens for medical testing. Many patients have phobias when it comes to blood and needles, and giving blood can be the most difficult part of an office visit. Phlebotomy technicians create an atmosphere of trust and confidence with patients while drawing blood specimens in a skillful, safe, and reliable manner. Entry-level job opportunities are available at hospitals, outpatient clinics, or physicians’ labs upon completion of this program and the National Healthcare Association (NHA) certification exam. The program includes training on anatomy and physiology; medical terminology; CPR; and a six-week, non-paid, supervised externship that runs Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Class size limited to 18 students.
