As the demand for medical services continues to rise, so does the need for qualified medical professionals, including trained phlebotomists. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 27 percent increase in phlebotomy jobs between 2012 and 2022. These job opportunities will be available in many medical facilities, including hospitals, clinics, diagnostic laboratories and physicians’ offices.
Individuals interested in a career as a phlebotomist must take a phlebotomy training program, such as the one offered at Jolie Academy. Our phlebotomy career training program aims to provide students with the skills and knowledge required for an entry-level job as an allied health professional, which we accomplish through a combination of theoretical and hands-on training. Some of the topics students can expect to learn about during our career training program include:
- Anatomy and physiology
- Medical terminology
- Venipuncture and micro collection techniques
- First aid
- Safety and sanitation
- Maintaining medical instruments
- Processing lab samples
Choosing Jolie Academy For Your Phlebotomy Career Training
Although you likely have many options for your phlebotomy training, it’s important to select a career training program that will best lay the foundation to your future success. At Jolie Academy, we take pride in providing a phlebotomy training program that is tailored to each student’s future goals. Small class sizes ensure that every student gets plenty of individualized instruction throughout the course of their phlebotomy career training program, both in the classroom and the laboratory setting. This one-on-one instruction is incredibly important as students develop their venipuncture skills, which they’ll practice repeatedly in the school laboratory. This hands-on practice is critical to the phlebotomist in training and will play a central role in each student’s preparation for the national certification exam. Students at Jolie Academy also have access to an experienced student services department, which will help them launch their careers after graduation through job placement assistance and similar services.
