This curriculum is designed to prepare students to perform the responsibilities of an entry-level phlebotomy technician. Students will learn venipuncture, heel, and finger stick techniques for adult and pediatric patients. Students will also be introduced to techniques of specimen preparations, interpretation of nurses and physicians orders, and proper techniques for handling of blood specimens.
The Career Studies Certificate in Phlebotomy prepares students for a career in obtaining blood samples from patients in health care settings.
