About our Phlebotomy Program

Phlebotomy is a two-semester program which includes a clinical experience in a lab during the second semester. Students will earn a Certificate of Employability. Phlebotomists are part of the allied health care team who have been trained to perform phlebotomy procedures (drawing blood) in hospitals, health care offices, medical laboratories, blood banks, and forensic agencies.

Students learn different methods of drawing blood, as well as waived lab testing. Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to take the certification exam through the American Society of Clinical Pathologists.

Degree Plan (C. O. E.)

Mandatory Drug Screening and Background Check

Mandatory Drug screening and background checks are required during the first week of the program and will be scheduled by the Division of Health faculty. Students must pass the mandatory drug screening to remain in the program. Students exhibiting signs of impaired clinical judgement related to suspected use of chemical substance, legal or otherwise, will be removed from the classroom, laboratory, or clinical setting immediately. Appeals can be made according to the process outlined in the PBE Student Handbook.

Students will be expected to meet health history, immunization, and background check requirements.
