Phlebotomy will be offered as a two-semester certificate program at WTC beginning in fall semester 2016.
The phlebotomy certificate provides students with the basic skills necessary for the collection of laboratory blood specimens. The phlebotomy program incorporates theory, skills, clinical experience, and special procedures required to meet the venipuncture needs in the hospital, clinical, urgent care, doctor’s office, nursing home, and/or other health care setting.
Students in the program will learn how to collect blood specimens correctly for venipunctures, micro collections, and capillary punctures. They will also learn therapeutic laboratory testing. As part of the program, the student will learn appropriate safety precautions to prevent the transmission of infectious diseases.
Selected learning experiences are provided in a number of healthcare agencies located in Williamsburg and surrounding counties. Students are assigned to clinical sites based on space availability and individual learning experiences. Graduates of the WTC phlebotomy certificate program are eligible to take a national certification examination for phlebotomy.
Advisor for the WTC phlebotomy program will be Cheri Bennett, an instructor in the College’s existing Practical Nursing program. Instructor for the program will be Shonda Gerald.
Program admission requires that prospective students pass required entrance tests, provide required paperwork for admission and financial assistance needs, show proof of required immunizations and physical exams, complete orientation, and purchase required supplies.
Courses in the program include Medical Terminology, CPR, Anatomy and Physiology, and various phlebotomy skills and experiential classes.
