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.

NOTE: While the college does not offer the national certification exam on campus, our curriculum prepares anyone to sit for the exam.

Classroom Instruction & Mandatory Lab 

The classroom instruction for this course will include online work (done at home on your personal computer), mandatory Zoom meetings, and mandatory on-campus lab days (see above). Students will be required to complete weekly coursework and assignments via Canvas (St. Charles Community College's instructional website) and be present and participate in online Zoom meetings and in-person labs held at the Center for Healthy Living on the Dardenne Creek Campus.

Clinical Internship

The 120 clinical hours provide students the means to accomplish the required venipunctures in order to complete the Phlebotomy program at SCC and seek out certification (if desired). Students will begin clinical hours once approved by the instructor (no earlier than Feb. 27).

Prior to beginning their clinical hours, students will be required to complete and pass a urine drug screening (done at a facility designated by SCC). Additional information will be provided by the Program Coordinator.

All clinical shifts are during the daytime, no evening or weekend hours are available. Individual schedules will be coordinated between the student and the clinical facility. All clinical hours must be completed by May 5.
