Students are required to wear navy blue scrubs to each class, bring a box of latex or non-latex gloves (see course catalog for latex allergy questionnaire and form) and to wear white tennis shoes.

Students may refer to the course catalog for other details.  Course catalog will be posted on the web site as well as the registration form and course syllabus.

The student may expect to posses the following skills upon completion of the course;

  • Perform venipuncture on adults, children and elderly.
  • Perform heel sticks on infants.
  • Perform finger sticks.

  5. other health care facilities

After the six week course, students will graduate upon successful completion of required evaluation process, and will then begin their 25 draws along with capillary draws. The school will allow students to come in to draw on Tuesdays from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM and on Wednesday from 5:00PM until 8:00PM.  Once the student has completed their 25 draws  and 10 capillary draws they are then eligible to sit for the National Healthcareer Association Exam.  This exam will certify the student as a Phlebotomy Technician in all 50 states.  Once this certification has been achieved, the student can then go on to do their clinical rotation through Oakwood Hospital Out Patient Labs to complete their 100 draws.  The student will work one on one with another certified phlebotomist drawing blood samples from patients coming in as well as processing laboratory specimens using the centrifuge machine and preparing fresh frozen specimens.  The student will not get paid for their rotation.  This is a complimentary externship for the student to help better prepare them for employment. The students liability insurance is paid through the school.

    When are your next set of classes??

  4. By kimmel52 on Aug 31, 2009

    hi John;
    Classes begin on September 24th, 2009. The phlebotomy course has two sections on Thrusday, one from 8 AM until 2:30 PM and then one from 3PM until 9:30 PM. Our CNA class begins on the 25th of september, and runs 6 weeks also. The only difference is that the CNA program meets on Friday and Saturday. So, the CNA’s will meet two times weekly for 6 hours. The CNA course also includes 56 hours of clinical practice during the 6 weeks. Job placement is included with each course. I try to place my students after they graduate. They are amazing, a wonderful group. Feel free to drop by and pick up a course catalogue and syllabus when you have time.
    Thank you,
    Nancy Kimmel

    Requesting updated info re phleb workshop in Garden City/Dearborn MI,class schedules.

  6. By kimmel52 on Sep 4, 2009

    Hello Gail;
    Our next Phlebotomy class will begin on September 24th, 2009. Currently we have 5 openings in our afternoon class which begins at 3:00PM and ends at 9:30PM. The day class is full. We only take 8 students per class. This helps fcilitate a strong learning environment, and I can help students if they have questions. Classes meet every Thursday. Students are requested to wear navy blue scrubs to class, white tennis shoes and bring a box of latex/or non-latex gloves. Stethoscope and blood pressure cuff are optional but suggested due to the health care skills you will be learning. There are some really good buys out there where you can get a stethoscope & BP cuff with stethoscope included for around $10.00 each. Let me know if you have any other questions. The information will be updated.

    Thank you for taking the time to write in,

    Kindest regards,

    What is the starting rate for phlebotomy and can this be done on a part time basis….like 2 to 3 days a week?

  8. By nadia on Oct 25, 2009

    Hello do you have any courses for the Phlebotomy training starting in January 2010?

  9. By Lauren on Nov 12, 2009

    Hi Nancy,

    My daughter is interested in the January 2010 class. Is this a one day a week course? If so, what is the day and time. Do you offer weekend courses?

  10. By kimmel52 on Nov 14, 2009

    Hi Lauren;
    Our 2010 classes will begin on Thursday, January 21. The times are the same as our previous classes. We do not have any weekend phlebotomy classes as of yet.

    Best Wishes,
    Nancy Kimmel RN, CPI (ACS)

    Hi Nancy,
    I spoke to you this afternoon. How is the externship worked out? Is this during the day? If so, for how long? My biggest issue is getting the time off of work, as I work in Ohio. Will you ever have weekend classes for Phlebotomy?

  12. By kimmel52 on Dec 5, 2009

    Hi Jyll;
    The externship is usually only three days. That is about how long it takes to get 100 venipunctures. Hopefully we will be holding Phlebotomy courses on the weekend in March.
    Hope this helps,
    Best Wishes,

  18. By Renee on Feb 26, 2010

    When does the next phlebotomy course begin? Is job placement included with the price of the course as with the CNA course?

  19. By stacy on Feb 26, 2010

    i was wandering about the testing for the class what is the passing score for the class and NHA test?

  20. By kimmel52 on Mar 1, 2010

    So far we have had a 75% pass rate.

  21. By kimmel52 on Mar 1, 2010

    Hi Renee;
    We offer a great deal of educational resources to help our students find employment, though we do not actively place students. We offer students the use of the school and supplies to complete their 25 draws after graduation so that they may qualify to sit for the NHA Phlebotomy Certification Exam. When the pass, we also offer students a complimentary externship through Oakwood Hospital Labs where the students can work one on one with a phlebotomist and perform 100 venipunctures. We believe that this preparation offered to students after graduation will help them to be proficient healthcare providers and find employment.

    Students are encouraged to do their homework and to look into other phlebotomy programs and pricing,

    We believe in education and preparation of our students,
    Nancy Kimmel RN

  23. By Amanda on Mar 5, 2010

    I’m interested also in the Phlebotomy Training.Are all the spots for the Saturday classes already full? If so, when will you start the next 6 week course?
    Thank you in advance,

    hi, i was just wondering if there are entry requirements for this training course?

  25. By Marilyn Bloch on Jul 20, 2010

    I just received the book Pass the Net First Time, and I plan on taking the TEAS test for the third time this year. The book is very comprehensive and I learned more from it than from my days at Adelphi University undergrad in Speech and Hearing. In fact, the reading comprehension was never taught that way so that the student gets the correct answer. I think I will pass the Nurse Entrance Test at any college, or vocational school as a result of your training in this book. This book taught me more than four years of college at Adelphi where I learned nothing. Marilyn Bloch
