My Phlebotomy Certification Study Guide, now Available in PDF

Written by kimmel52 on November 27, 2009 – 1:32 am

get your phlebotomy technician certification

Prepare FAST, Prepare RIGHT

Now offering the My Phlebotomy Certification Study Guide

by

Nancy Kimmel RN, PhD, CHMM, Certified Phlebotomy Instructor, Certified Nursing Assistant Trainer,

Dr. Kimmel’s Phlebotomy Curriculum has been Approved by the National Healthcareer Institute.

 Ardent educator, Nancy Kimmel, is once again helping students across the nation prepare for certification examinations in the health care field. This time she has written a study guide for the Phlebotomy Technician Certification Exam.

With the advent of Dr. Kimmel’s  recognition from the National Healthcareer Association approving her phlebotomy course curriculum and making her school one of their testing sites, her goal in publishing the “My Phlebotomy Technician Study Guide” is to help her students and other phlebotomy students nationwide achieve top scores on any phlebotomy certification exam.

This challenging guide includes over 80 pages of tests and answer keys that will help the phlebotomy student master any certification exam.  Topics include order of draw, blood preparation, infection control and hospital procedures and protocols.

Recent phlebotomy technician graduates find that their initial difficulties on the job stem from not being thoroughly familiar with the many different labs that physicians order for their patient’s.

When the phlebotomy technician is not familiar with a test or a set of tests, they must take time to consult a chart or a fellow co-worker.  This takes away precious time from their already hectic schedule, and thus they are not able to perform the required amount of venipunctures.

This places them at odds with their less patient co-workers by increasing their work load.  Dr. Kimmel pushes her phlebotomy students to their maximum potential.  She integrates the book knowledge with real life application by providing her students with actual lab slips from various hospitals in the Metro Detroit Area and has them learn every test.

This may seem like a daunting task, but Dr. Kimmel teaches the labs according to the body system, so that the students understand the meaning and possible reasons behind each of the tests.  By grouping blood tests according to body systems, the phlebotomy student knowledge becomes like that of a hematologist.

Students studying to achieve their certification as a Phlebotomy Technician would do well to prepare using Dr. Kimmel’s study guide.  It is also a very good reference once they are working.

This guide is delivered directly to your PC in PDF format.  No waiting for the mail to arrive.  Start studying now, and get that certification that you have been waiting for.

If you have the desire to go into nursing, then you must first get ready to take the N.E.T., the HESI or the TEAS entrance test. You can begin preparing for your career by practicing your skills using the online tutorials and tests at The Nurses Learning Center. There are over 1000 questions and answers. You will get unlimited internet access, 24/7. It is yours to keep. New questions are added daily. It’s like sitting for the N.E.T., The HESI or the TEAS in your home.

Failure to follow facility or program policy and procedure may result in one or more of the

disciplinary actions below:

  • • Written warning by the instructor and /or supervisor.
  • • Immediate dismissal if behavior is still not corrected by the next grading period.

Cheating: Students who have cheated in the classroom or clinical setting will receive a

zero (0) grade for that test/evaluation. Students will not be allowed to retake (for points)

any test/evaluation on which they have cheated and will be immediately dismissed from the program.

Re-entrance into the Phlebotomy program may be initiated when due to early termination for illness or emergency with a formal meeting with the director and written notification of why student had to leave program and reasoning for re-admission consideration.  Students may be readmitted into the next session without charge.  When a student has missed more than 2 days of lecture or clinical in either combination, they must make up those hours in the next session without charge.  If the student has missed more than two days they will be asked to drop out of the current program and the student is required to repeat the program from the beginning.   Students who have been dismissed from the program for any reason or of the aforementioned reasons are not eligible for re-admission.

Re-entrance into the C.N.A. program;

Tardiness/Absence: Students are required to be on time for each class and at least 15 minutes to a half an hour early for clinical.  If a student is more than ten minutes late to clinical or class they must provide the instructor with prior notice via instructor’s phone and provide a written explanation for their tardiness.  Students late a second time for clinical or class will be subject to dismissal from the program. Due to the short length and intensity of the aforementioned programs, absence to any class or clinical during the six-week course will be reason for dismissal. Program dismissal based on absence is reviewed on a case by case basis.

Leave of absence: Students are required to complete the program without any lapse in time.  If a student must drop out of the program, refund policy is in place. Please see page 5.

Make-up work:  Due to the sensitive nature of the programs in regard to performing invasive procedures and direct patient care, any homework must be turned in before the last day of class.  Students are encouraged to complete their homework assignments in a timely manner.

OATH OF CONFIDENTIALITY

Phlebotomy Technician Program/Nursing Assistant Program

I, _________________________________recognize the importance of absolute

confidentiality in the Phlebotomy Technician/Nursing Assistant career I have chosen. I pledge my oath that I will never discuss, photocopy, duplicate or disclose matters pertaining to the patients,

clients, citizens, children, cooperating program providers, and other persons with whom I

work in the course of my academic program at Phlebotomy Career Training.  I further

pledge my oath of confidentiality to the families of those persons and to any issues

connected with them. This oath is binding with the exception that I may use such

confidential information for the express purpose of facilitating learning and taking extreme

care to remain as discreet as possible while diligently protecting the identity of persons

take as part of assigned course work.)

I pledge to abide by the confidentiality policies of the facility in which I am placed for off campus

educational experiences.

I realize that any breach of confidentiality is very serious and will result in immediate

Why Become a Nursing Assistant?

Nursing assistants act as a bridge between the patients and the medical staff.

Nursing assistants not only provide assistance to ensure the patients’ comfort, they also provide emotional support to the patients and their family.

Nursing assistants are responsible for preparing and maintaining a report of the patients’ medical condition and vital signs. The nursing staff refers to these reports while attending to patient.

Nursing assistants are also required to assist the nursing staff in setting up of medical equipment and to help move the patients whenever necessary.  In this profession, there is no chance of being bored of the job because things keep changing daily. Every day has its own set of new tasks and challenges. Basically, the job is the same but you can never predict what a nursing assistant might have to deal with the very next day.

A nursing assistant’s job is not easy as it comes with many responsibilities. A person who does not work with dedication and sincerity cannot succeed as a nursing assistant. This profession is a good choice for those who have the passion to help others. The nurse’s aides duties are mainly associated with helping the patient with bathing, dressing and eating. Having good communication skills is also vital in this profession as a nursing assistant has to communicate clearly and effectively with the patients and other medical staff at all times. In conclusion, choosing the profession of nursing assistant can enable you to touch the lives of many people and this can be a source of pride for and help you in being a helpful member of society.

Nancy Kimmel’s phlebotomy career training course is unlike any other phlebotomy course. Students are trained not only in venipuncture, but they learn how to place a 12 lead ECG, how to take blood pressure, pulse, respiration and temperataure,  and recognize when a patients vitals need to be re-checked and reported,  they learn  pharmacology basics of blood pressure medications and diabetic medications.  An indepth study of diabetic medication and the signs and symptoms of high and low blood sugar is also taught.  This is crucial knowledge in an emergency situation where every minute counts.  Students are taught how to do a history and physical on patients. They learn how to assess the patient recognizing that each person is unique in how they are effected by the disease process as well as understanding the circulatory physiology of the heart, including the anatomy of the veins and arteries. Students learn how to insert intravenous catheters as well as how to read basic ECG (electrocardiogram strips) and recognize important heart rhythms that are immediately dangerous to life and health. Students are taught how to communicate therapeutically with patients and family members and how to recognize the signs of anxiety. All of this information and much more is done in six hour weekly classes for six weeks. Nancy Kimmel goes one step farther by helping every student find a job. The entire nation knows that Michigans economy is suffering. Nancy Kimmel is trying to help by offering a fast paced intensive training program as well as job placement for Michigan residents. In her own words: “I have great faith in all of my student’s that I have trained, and I will do everything in my power to help them all find employment in the healthcare field.. My students get placed in ER’s, trauma centers, urgent care centers, as well as in doctors clinics and hospitals. Let’s put is this way, if myself or any of my family members had to be in the hospital for any reason, I would trust my students to take of them. That’s how good they are.! That is also why I only take eight students per class. Smaller classes mean a better learning experience. Upon graduation these students are professional medical healthcare providers ready to assist the sick, the needy, the helpless and other medical professionals in a kind and caring manner that is truly genuine from the heart.”

Where Never to Draw, for Student Nurses and Phlebotomists

Written by kimmel52 on August 13, 2009 – 2:06 pm

Though you would never draw in a leg, this is what cellulitis looks like.

Though you would never draw in a leg, this is what cellulitis looks like.

Assessing the skin; Where not to draw, when to ask a nurse
1. Never draw from the paralyzed side of a patient. (reasoning: the blood flow is less, so is muscle tone. There is also decreased venous flow and hence the veins are not as spongy and springy.
2. Never draw from an arm that has been bandaged. (reasoning: you are not aware of what the nature of the bandage represents, it could be cellulitis, and by drawing from that area you could cause systemic blood infection or septicemia .
3. Never draw from a site where you notice swelling, redness, purulent drainage, or it is warm to the touch. (reasoning: these signs indicate an active infection process, and drawing from this site could cause a systemic blood infection)
4. Never draw from the side of a patient who has had a mastectomy. (reasoning: the lymph glands have been removed and blood flow is reduced to the area. It is also possible to cause a lymphatic infection or cause a thrombosis (blood clot). If a patient has had a bilateral mastectomy, then you must consult the nurse to get permission to draw from a distal site.)
5. Never draw from a limb that looks blue or is very cold, without first identifying why the limb is in this state and making an attempt to warm the patient, (offer blanket, turn up the heat in the room).
6. Never draw from a combative person without assistance of someone to hold the arm. (protect yourself)
7. Never draw from a person who is vomiting, emotionally distraught, or is on a bed pan, (attempt to calm the patient, ask for help and wait until the patient has finished toileting)
8. Never draw a patient or ask to draw a patient if they are in the middle of eating. (nourishment is life and health, and patient’s need to eat. Give them their time and privacy.)
9. Never draw a patient when they are in conference with a doctor. If however the nurse is in the room, it is o.k. to approach and interrupt politely, asking permission to draw.)
10. Never draw on the side of a patient that has had an angioplasty. ( surgeons go in from the femoral artery)
