Often times, phlebotomists are the icebreakers – the bridges between a relaxed, calm patient and the doctors and nurses, especially in Emergency Room settings or walk-in medical clinics. Patients rely on phlebotomists to be careful, safe, and compassionate, as many patients are fearful of needles or getting blood drawn. Aside from collecting specimens, phlebotomists have the job of being soothers to those anxious patients, getting them to feel relaxed and cared for before their health histories are handed over to on-call nurses and doctors.
This phlebotomy training program place immense emphasis on being compassionate towards patients, as well as learning how to draw specimens with minimal to no pain. This course required a maximum of 15 credit hours to be completed before students can attempt the national phlebotomist exam.
Students will learn the basics of phlebotomy, such as medical terminology, venipuncture, and safe processing and transporting of bloodwork. They will also be required to complete successful collection of 100 venipuncture specimens before receiving the OK to proceed with their phlebotomy certifications.
