A Phlebotomist is a medical professional that is responsible for properly collecting specimens to be sent for laboratory analysis. This is the critical first step toward providing physicians with information that will aid in diagnoses and treatment of ailments. Phlebotomy is a great starting point and profession in the health care arena that can bridge to other health careers such as Medical Laboratory Technology.  

Barton’s 3-credit hour Phlebotomy class and the 1 credit hour Clinical Practicum are taught by experienced Laboratory Technologists with many years of experience in the field. This online course offers convenience and flexibility, as well as allowing students the eligibility to sit for a national phlebotomy certification exam. The Great Bend Barton campus serves as a cooperative lab site that offers the required hands-on training experience in a laboratory setting for the area students. Students unable to use the Great Bend Cooperative lab are required to solicit their own cooperating laboratory support. If students provide documented experience, course quiz out is an option as well. See ASCP and ASPT for more information on this 4 credit hour career opportunity.
