40-Hours Of Classroom And Clinical Experience

Classes meet two evenings per week for 6-weeks. During clinical times, students will progress from practicing on manikins to actual live persons (each other).  Prior to completion of the program, students must perform a minimum of 30 successful venipunctures and 10 skin punctures. These may be accomplished in class on volunteers, doing cholesterol screenings on friends or at health fairs.

Classroom time will consist of the following content in a sequential manner in order to establish a smooth transition from that of student to entry level professional:

  • Infection Control
  • Standard Precautions
  • Lab Safety
  • Anatomy/Physiology/Medical Terminology
  • Patient and Specimen Identification
  • Proper Selection and Preparation of Skin Puncture Sites
  • Proper Selection of Antiseptic
  • Proper Selection of Blood Collection Equipment
  • Proper Selection of Tubes and Additives
  • Proper Order of Draw
  • Proper Post Puncture Care
  • Appropriate Disposal of Sharps, Needles, and Waste
  • Communication, Legal, and Ethical Issues
Blood Tubes
Simple, painless draws.
