Phlebotomy

A phlebotomist’s duties and responsibilities focus on obtaining and proper handling of human blood.  This includes taking blood samples from patients and correctly cataloging them for lab analysis.  They may also conduct home care visits and may be responsible for transporting fluid samples between the sample site and the laboratory.

 

At the end of the course, students will take the National Certification Exam offered through the American Society of Clinical Pathologists to become a Certified Phlebotomist.

Course Content Includes

During the classroom hours you will learn proper blood collection using a vacutainer, a syringe, and micro-collection, as well as learning how to draw from children, infants and geriatric patients.

 

The clinical hours are spent in a laboratory setting where students learn how to spin the blood, separate the serum from the cells, and learn which department each tube is distributed to.
