Classes Begin Every Monday
This program will prepare students for an entry-level position as a Phlebotomy Technician in the healthcare setting. The competencies of this program follow the duties and responsibilities of a Phlebotomy Technician as outlined in the program. Topics of study include anatomy and physiology, phlebotomy practice and health care setting, infection control, legal and regulatory issues, and the venipuncture procedure. The students will also demonstrate their skills in the skills lab clinical setting. The students will be encouraged to attain their national certification through NHA and also to pursue their license with the Louisiana State Board of Medical Examiners after certification is completed. Upon completion of all program requirements, the students will receive a certificate of completion. However, to remain current, it is mandatory that the graduate obtain 10hrs of continuing education every 2 years.
The Phlebotomy Program is outlined to be completed in 7 weeks. Our program has been designed to offer flexibility for our students, such as hybrid classes. This program includes theory and hands-on training. The total program hours are 68 which consist of online lectures and only 3 days of mandatory hands-on in-person skills lab training.
The course includes the clinical portion to be taught in a skills lab for supervised vein /capillary punctures and other hands-on training. All theories will be available online.
All work will be posted online at the beginning of each course. Once the work is posted the student can begin to do the assignment on their own. Students will not have to attend online at a certain time.
