Phlebotomists collect blood primarily by performing venipunctures or finger-sticks. The duties of a phlebotomist may include properly identifying the patient, interpreting the tests requested on the requisition, drawing blood into the correct tubes with the proper additives, accurately explaining the procedure to the patients, preparing patients accordingly, practicing the required forms of asepsis, practicing standard and universal precautions, performing the skin/vein puncture, withdrawing blood into containers or tubes, restoring hemostasis of the puncture site, instructing patients on post-puncture care, ordering tests per the doctor’s requisition, affixing tubes with electronically printed labels, and delivering specimens to a laboratory. Students will learn through a combination of classroom lectures, labs, and clinical rotations.
Students will need to complete a background check, drug screen, and provide documentation of vaccines as well as other basic medical procedures depending on the requirements of the clinical site.
