Do you want to work in an emergency department, clinic, laboratory or any number of settings hiring phlebotomists or phlebotomy technicians? Or, perhaps add to a previous license or certification? The ISU phlebotomy program prepares you for these roles and allows an opportunity to take a national certification exam upon course completion. Topics range from blood draws and laboratory procedures to employability skills and safety. 

Sixty (60) hours of this 160-hour course are online with user-friendly videos, assignments, handouts and quizzes. During the same time frame, students will meet six (6) hours per week for the skills portion of the course, followed by 40 hours of clinical experience, drawing blood in a real clinical agency!

Students need to plan for the following additional costs: uniform, immunizations and a Healthcare Provider CPR certification course (CPR available through Workforce Training or area hospitals). Clinical hours are likely to break out of normal course hours due to agency operating hours, but a clinical schedule will be provided in advance. Total clinical hours are dependent on students completing at least 100 blood draws—fewer will require additional clinical time. As a part of this course, all students will complete a background check during the first weeks of class. Students should contact the department prior to signing up if concerned about their criminal background history.

HEALTH INSURANCE: In accordance with the affiliation agreement between ISU and clinical agencies, all students are required to show proof of health insurance before entering the clinical setting.
