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.”
One can see the passion that Professor Kimmel has for her students and for the healthcare filed. Talk about a stimulus package for Michigan, this is one for sure.
