The phlebotomy program is designed to prepare students to work as entry-level phlebotomists. Entry-level phlebotomists work in a variety of clinical settings. This is done with an emphasis on venipuncture and micro-collection techniques, infection control, safety, quality assurance, personal communication, management, and professionalism. Graduates are eligible to sit for the national examination to become certified as a Phlebotomy Technician (PBT) by the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP).
