Phleb4U Creates Bright Future for Phlebotomy Students (Alsip, IL) – Students interested in starting a career in Phlebotomy are welcome to take on Elizabeth Jones’ Basic Phlebotomy Training. According to instructor Jones, students have grown tremendously through the program. “The highlight of teaching this course is getting to see them graduate and go get jobs in the field, that alone has shown the growth they have achieved through this course” she said.
Jones also mentions there currently being a high demand on Phlebotomists, and how this course will provide the skill sets to get the students on the right path toward this profession. “Phlebotomists help out doctors to make sure patients are getting the correct diagnoses. We will also ensure patients are tested thoroughly,” she added.
The Basics of Phlebotomy
Phlebotomy is the practice of drawing blood for testing and also an important tool to diagnose medical conditions. The process involves using a cannula to make a puncture in the vein, typically located in the arm. Phlebotomists usually draw blood for tests, donations, transfusions or research to be analyzed in a clinical laboratory. The results are used to diagnose and come up with a treatment plan for illnesses, and may also determine if a patient is receiving proper nutrition.
Phleb4U provides a basic seven-week training course on Phlebotomy that focuses on all essentials to start a career in the field.

The program offers key information to be a successful Phlebotomist and clinical laboratory sessions. “I teach techniques and knowledge they will need to have in the field.
