Learn to collect and draw blood and other lab specimens for clinical and hospital laboratory testing.
Students who complete this course will take the National Healthcareer Association Certified Phlebotomy Technician Examination to obtain national certification.
This course is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skill to enter a career as a phlebotomist. Students will receive a basic foundation of anatomy and physiology, lab tests, and specimen collection skills. Practical application is reinforced as students perform venipuncture each week.
This specialization is delivered face-to-face and may contain online components.
Students must be at least 18 years of age and have their high school diploma, GED, or equivalent by June of their senior year.

Medical Terminology is highly recommended, but not required.
Phlebotomists are specially trained to collect blood from a patient for laboratory analysis. They provide an important service to the health care industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov), employment of phlebotomists is projected to grow 27 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, blood donor centers, and other locations will need phlebotomists to perform blood work.
Blood analysis remains an essential function in medical laboratories and hospitals. Demand for phlebotomists will remain high as doctors and other healthcare professionals require blood work for analysis and diagnoses. However, federal health legislation will expand the number of patients who have access to health insurance, increasing patient access to medical care.
Phlebotomists typically work in hospitals, clinics, physician’s offices, medical and surgical centers, insurance agencies, blood and plasma donation centers, U.S. Armed Forces, governmental medical facilities and agencies, university research labs, and elderly car facilities.
