Beginning August 2014, Blue Ridge Community College will launch a new continuing education program in Phlebotomy. The program will be offered during the day on the Henderson County Campus and in the evening on the Transylvania County Campus.
The Phlebotomy program is an intense course of study with three phases (class, lab and clinical) that prepares students for technician positions to draw blood from patients and prepare specimens for testing or storage in hospitals, physicians’ offices, laboratories, clinics and blood banks. Content includes the circulatory anatomy and physiology, and the phlebotomist role in the health care system. The course also covers procedures and the responsibility and skills required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. Students will complete 110 hours of classroom instruction and 90 hours of clinical instruction. Completers receive a certificate of completion and are eligible for state certification.
All interested persons must attend an information session to receive important registration, courses costs, and enrollment information. For more information about the Phlebotomy program and view a complete list of information session dates and times, visit www.blueridge.edu/phlebotomy or contact Blue Ridge Community College at (828) 694-1750.
