Getting the best start to your phlebotomy career starts with the right education. At the Jolie Academy Wilkes-Barre, PA location, we provide each of our students with the best training possible, which we try to achieve through the professionalism of our facilities, small class sizes and individualized instruction. Hands-on learning also plays a big role in the education at our phlebotomy school, with students practicing their venipuncture techniques in preparation for the licensing examination after graduation.
A Comprehensive Curriculum
The curriculum in our phlebotomy school is designed to provide you with a solid foundation on which to grow your phlebotomy career. Throughout the program, you’ll learn through a combination of theoretical and hands-on learning methods as you develop a solid understanding of:
- Anatomy and Physiology
- Medical Terminology
- First Aid
- Venipuncture and micro collection
- Common complications
Students in our phlebotomy school also spend a significant amount of time in the student clinic where they’ll perfect their venipuncture technique under the guidance of an instructor. Prior to graduation, each student can expect to take many successful venipunctures and capillary sticks, a process that will increase their confidence level and ensure they have the skills necessary to meet their career goals after graduation.
All of this hands-on practice is also great preparation for the national certification exam, which tests graduates’ skill levels and knowledge of the phlebotomy field. Students at Jolie Academy spend a great deal of time preparing for the certification exam as they approach graduation, ensuring they have the knowledge and confidence to pass. Earning this certification is a critical step to beginning a successful phlebotomy career, as it assures employers that applicants have the professionalism required of the position.
