Phlebotomy School

School of Phlebotomy

Launch your healthcare career as a Phlebotomy Technician with HNL Lab Medicine's new program.

You’ll be job ready in eight weeks!

Phlebotomists are in demand, here at  HNL Lab Medicine and across the country. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says job opportunities in phlebotomy are expected to grow by 25% between 2016 and 2026, which outpaces growth in other healthcare support occupations.  HNL Lab Medicine's new School of Phlebotomy, a low-cost, eight-week program with a clinical internship — prepares students to take the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) Phlebotomy Technician Certification Exam.

What does a Phlebotomist do?

A phlebotomist (fli-ˈbä-tə-mist), or phlebotomy technician, draws blood and collects specimens for laboratory testing and other purposes and follows proper procedures for specimen identification, processing, storage and transport. Phlebotomists work closely with patients, performing registration tasks, providing general assistance and helping patients who experience adverse reactions. Successful phlebotomists have an interest in healthcare and enjoy interacting with and caring for a wide variety of patients. Medical and diagnostic laboratories, hospitals and outpatient care facilities, blood donation centers, and physician practices employ phlebotomists. There are full and part-time positions, with some offering flexible or varied scheduling and/or travel to different locations. 

Prerequisites & Class Schedule

The only academic prerequisite is a high school diploma or GED. The admissions process includes completing an application, interviewing with HNL Lab Medicine Human Resources and obtaining all required medical, safety and insurance clearances/screenings.

You’ll complete classroom work at HNL Lab Medicine’s Roble Road location in Allentown and training within a Patient Service Center. Students can expect 2 to 3 hours of nightly independent study/homework.

The program is perfect for high school/GED graduates looking to begin a career or work in healthcare while continuing their education. It’s also designed for career changers, especially those with retail and other customer service experience.

Phlebotomy School Program

The eight-week course prepares you to take the American Society for Clinical Pathology (ASCP) Phlebotomy Technician Certification Exam upon completion.

The program includes:

  • In-class study (textbook, videos, etc.), demonstrations and hands-on training from HNL’s expert laboratory professionals, phlebotomy trainers and experienced phlebotomy staff.

  • An externship at one of HNL Lab Medicine's Patient Centers (PCs), where you’ll be mentored by an HNL phlebotomist and receive clinical training in the field.
  • A practice test to prepare you for the ASCP certification exam.

There are no hidden costs: Tuition includes textbooks, all classroom training, a hands-on externship and a practice test for the ASCP certification exam. We believe you will find the HNL Lab Medicine program costs much less than what other programs charge.
