Vincennes University Jasper Campus–Continuing Education is pleased to offer a noncredit training program for those who wish to learn skills for an entry-level healthcare profession. The VUJ Phlebotomy Technician program prepares students to be a phlebotomist in a hospital, clinic and laboratory. Classes available in Jasper, Bedford, Newburgh and other locations in Indiana.
The primary responsibility of a phlebotomist is to obtain blood specimens from clients for the purpose of laboratory analysis. This requires the phlebotomist to become familiar with all aspects related to the blood collection process. The focus of this training program is to provide the students with the comprehensive skills to be able to perform venipunctures competently and safely. Lectures will include medical terminology, anatomy and physiology, blood collection procedures, specimen communication skills and professionalism.
Students will have hands-on lab practice sessions to learn the skills and techniques to perform the required puncture methods. Upon successful completion of program students will receive a VUJC Certificate of Completion and have the opportunity to test for the National Healthcareer Association certification.
