In SFCC’s phlebotomy classes, you’ll learn skills in a hands-on environment, working with blood specimens and other patient fluids in accordance with OSHA safety regulations and standards. As you work to earn your phlebotomy certificate, you’ll become proficient in drawing and obtaining blood samples from a vein or capillary for laboratory analysis, and you’ll acquire patient communication skills, study anatomy and physiology, and gain an understanding of legal and ethical patient considerations.
This is the only phlebotomy certification program currently offered in Santa Fe, and you can complete the curriculum in one semester—only 16 weeks. Upon completion, you’ll be eligible to take the national licensing exam through the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP). To apply please fill out the college application as well as the phlebotomy program application.
Phlebotomists earn an annual median salary of $$37,380. Employment is expected to grow 22% nationally by 2030, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
