Phlebotomy Technician

A Phlebotomist draws blood from patients for analysis or transfusion. The most common method of blood collection is called a venipuncture. Phlebotomists do not analyze the samples, nor administer injections or medications. Following blood collection, phlebotomists must clearly label and document the specimens. Blood collection and record-keeping are the primary responsibilities of a phlebotomist, but a their duties are not limited to these activities.

The Phlebotomy Technician course prepares the student to be an effective member of the health care team. This program includes patient care techniques, universial precautions, communication skills, and other skills needed to provide quality patient care. Students are trained to perform venipuncture and to collect blood samples for accurate blood reliable test results. Students will be in direct contact with patients in hospitals, doctors office, laboratories, clinics, blood centers, and nursing homes. Students will learn principles of blood collection and order of draw, charting, along with anatomy & physiology as it relates to patient conditions and disease. Students will also learn infection control and safety standards set forth by the medical community and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)
