This course will provide an opportunity for students to further their study of principles and concepts in the field and to apply their knowledge in a variety of application both in the traditional classroom setting and in work/job related experiences. The class will be an individualized, arranged course, with learning outcomes determined by the instructor in consultation with the student and permission of the School Dean.
This course will be an advanced guided experience for community college students to explore topics of interest in their field through research, field experience, presentation, computer applications, lab experience, or other project agreed upon between the student and the supervising faculty and is submitted to the dean in a written contract.
This course is designed to provide the student with practical experience in blood drawing techniques. Students will spend about 6 to 8 hours in student laboratories practicing phlebotomy techniques on model arms and on volunteers prior to being placed in clinical facilities. Students will be expected to obtain up to 100 venipunctures and 10 capillary sticks and must schedule sufficient time to accomplish this at the clinical facility.
