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.

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.”
