This course prepares students for entry-level positions as phlebotomists in hospitals, clinical labs and physician offices. With practical experience obtained at a clinical partner facility, students learn to draw blood using various techniques in micro-collection and gain experience in specimen collection, transport, reporting and recording of patient data. There are 120 clinical hours required in addition to the online coursework and mandatory lab days.
St. Charles Community College does not offer a Phlebotomy certification exam. Students interested in learning more about becoming a Certified Phlebotomy Technician (CPT) can search out additional information online.
The classroom instruction for this course will include online work (done at home on your personal computer) and mandatory on-campus lab days (see dates above). Students will be required to complete weekly coursework and assignments via Moodle (St. Charles Community College's instructional website) and be present and participate in labs held at the Nursing & Allied Health Center.
