Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

Phlebotomists draw blood from patients or donors in hospitals, blood banks, or similar facilities for analysis or other medical purposes. Phlebotomists verify or record identity of patient or donor and converse with patient or donor to ease fear of procedure. They apply tourniquets to arms, locate accessible veins, swab puncture areas with disinfectant, and insert needles into veins to draw blood into collection tubes or bags. Phlebotomists withdraw needles, apply treatment to puncture sites, and label and store blood containers for subsequent processing. They may prick fingers to draw blood, conduct interviews, take vital signs, and draw and test blood samples to screen donors at blood banks.

Background checks and drug screenings are required for this program.
