Certificate Program

The Phlebotomy Certificate curriculum prepares students for entry-level positions in hospitals, clinics and other health care settings, collecting blood samples from patients, performing related technical procedures and processing the associated clerical tasks. As vital members of the health care team, phlebotomists work closely with patients and require good communication and organizational skills. To be successful, phlebotomists should be practical and accurate, able to inspire confidence in others and to put patients at ease. Phlebotomists need to be skilled at collecting blood and other specimens correctly to procure high quality specimens for laboratory analysis. The Phlebotomy Certificate program emphasizes a combination of phlebotomy theory and practical application necessary for successful employment.

Graduates may qualify for employment in hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices, and other health care settings. After completing requirements, graduates are eligible to sit for a national certification exam.
