PCC’s Phlebotomy course provides theory and clinical experiences needed for the proper collection of blood and other specimens used for diagnostic testing. Emphasis is placed on ethics, legalities, medical terminology, safety and universal precautions, health care delivery systems, patient relations, anatomy and physiology, and specimen collection.
Upon completion, students should be able to safely perform procedures necessary for specimen collections on patents in various health care settings and may be eligible for national certification as phlebotomy technicians.
Scheduled for February 11–May 7 from 5–8:45 p.m. on Tuesday–Thursday, this program prepares students to become certified EKG Technicians.
Students will learn the anatomy and physiology of the heart, including the electrical conduction system and how it affects heart function. This course also covers the cardiac cycle, common artifacts, and cardiac terminology.
