Phlebotomy 100 / Introduction to Phlebotomy for Allied Health Professionals can be taken as a 2-credit course or as noncredit course if you are an experienced health care professional who wants to obtain the skill or refresh old skills.   It is a 30-hour course. This course DOES NOT qualify you to sit for the phlebotomy certification exam. Most hospitals require phlebotomists to be certified, so if you want to work in a hospital as a phlebotomist this may NOT be the course for you. The class is mostly taken by nurse aides, medical assistants, RNs, LPNs, EMTs, and paramedics but is not limited to just these. The course is offered in blended format in Harrisburg Spring, Summer and Fall, Lancaster Spring and Fall, and York during Summer semester.

If you are a healthcare professional interested in taking the noncredit phlebotomy course, contact noncredit health care at 717-221-1352 or 800-222-4222, ext. 211352.
