Program Details

In this self-paced online program, you'll discover the purpose and application of phlebotomy in various health care settings.

You'll learn the diagnostic reasoning, equipment, and techniques used for blood collection, including venipuncture, capillary puncture, and arterial puncture. Additionally, you'll appreciate the ever-evolving use of technology in phlebotomy processing.

Finally, we'll explore critical aspects of quality patient care and legal topics that protect both the patient and the health care professional.

This program includes a registration voucher for the CPT exam, offered by the National Healthcareer Association (NHA). We'll also provide an online study guide and practice exams to help you prepare.

Please note that the NHA has certain eligibility requirements to sit for the CPT exam, including a high school diploma or the equivalent, successful completion of a program like ours, and work experience that includes performing at least 30 successful venipunctures and 10 successful capillary sticks on live individuals. Mannequins may not be used to meet these requirements.

This program's optional 40-hour unpaid clinical externship with a local healthcare provider can be a good way to fulfill your experience requirements. You must pass a background check and a drug screen to be eligible, and depending on the requirements of your externship site, you may need to show proof of immunization, 2-step TB test, flu shot, and CPR certification. You'll be responsible for any additional fees involved.
