The purpose of the Phlebotomy Course is to provide prospective Phlebotomists, Laboratory Technicians, Nurses, and Health Care Workers with the necessary knowledge and insight to become a successful technician in the laboratory blood specimen collection area and/or nursing blood sample collection areas. They will also learn step-by-step how to communicate with the patient, take the patient’s blood, and make the whole blood taking process a pleasant encounter for the patient.
The programme will enable the learners to develop and demonstrate knowledge and understanding, qualities, skills, and other attributes in the following areas:
- The skills and attitudes appropriate to assist in providing care.
- The impact of psychological, sociological, political, spiritual factors and how these affect the patients and their families.
- The health sciences will reinforce and support nursing practice.
