ID : 10014   
« back to classes page
Phlebotomists work directly with patients to collect quality blood samples in clinical settings and prepare those samples for laboratory testing. Phlebotomists may work in dynamic, fast-paced environments such as physician offices, clinics, nursing homes, hospitals, and labs to create a comfortable patient atmosphere. In some settings, a Phlebotomist may perform bedside testing.

 

The Phlebotomy Technician Certificate includes theory and hands-on instruction during the two-month program. Students will learn the anatomy of the circulatory system, medical terminology, quality assurance, and infection control. Students will also learn the basics of HIPAA security and privacy as it relates to the profession. Hands-on training in venipuncture procedures, capillary procedures, heelsticks, and non-blood specimens are also performed. Individuals interested in starting a career in the medical field, nursing or physician assistant school applicants, prospective patient care technicians, current nurses, or those looking to develop skills may benefit from this program. As a part of this program, students will participate in a live skills lab setting, performing venipunctures and capillary sticks. This certificate program will assist students in preparing for the National Healthcareer Association Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) exam. Exam fee and textbook are additional. Textbook is required at the first class meeting and is available at the KSU Center Bookstore.
