Phlebotomy Technique Training

Lecture and clinical lab will be included in this intensive accredited phlebotomy technique training course with Mike Blankenship, American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) certified medical technologist. All aspects of drawing and processing laboratory specimens and rules and precautions featuring infection prevention will be presented in a controlled environment.

This program consists of 40 lecture hours at ENMU-Portales plus 100 hours of clinical laboratory experience (clinical rotation) at the Plains Regional Medical Center in Clovis (or others to be arranged). It will help prepare students to take the ASCP exam for certification as a PBT (Phlebotomy Technician). Students who successfully complete this course will receive a completion certificate from Eastern New Mexico University. However, job placement is not guaranteed, and students are encouraged to take the nationally recognized ASCP certification exam (must be arranged and paid for by the student – www.ascp.org/Board-of-Certification/GetCertified). The approximate cost for the ASCP PBT certification exam is currently $135, and the closest testing sites are Albuquerque, Amarillo or Lubbock.

In-Class Practice: During class, students will practice venipunctures on each other; therefore, they will have the same exposure to bloodborne pathogens as they would if working in a hospital setting. Should a student have concerns or have a condition that would endanger the other students, they should address this with the instructor before starting the venipunctures.
Due to the potential risk of accidental needlesticks (either in the classroom or during clinicals), current personal medical insurance is required to cover costs associated with medical treatments for accidental needlesticks. ENMU and/or Tricore are not liable for any costs acquired with said treatments.
Please note that our clinical affiliates now require an acceptable criminal background check (conducted by the NM Departments of Health and Public Safety, CCHSP, including both nationwide and statewide screening) on all phlebotomy students who will enter into a clinical rotation. The state of New Mexico also requires an acceptable criminal background check before a job applicant can be hired as a phlebotomist, regardless of the employer (public or private). For a listing of felony convictions which disqualify an applicant or caregiver from employment, contractual services, or student placement with a care provider, go online to http://dhi.health.state.nm.us/cchsp/index/php, select link on the right called "7.1.9 NMAC Caregivers Criminal History Screening Requirements", and scroll to page 6, section 7.1.9.11 "Disqualifying Convictions, A through H".

Please be aware that class scheduling/fees are subject to change after publication, and that Distance Education may find it necessary to cancel the course, for unforeseen reasons.

By Dec.r 10, 2013 and before a student may enter their clinical rotation (estimated to begin during the second or third week of the semester), they must provide proof of specific immunizations (TB-PPD skin test within previous year, immunity or immunization to both measles and German measles [Rubella] {MMR vaccine}, immunity to Hepatitis B or immunization for Hepatitis B or medical documentation of positive infection status with Hepatitis B, and verification of history of chicken pox or shingles or proof of immunity to varicella {chicken pox} or immunization for varicella virus). Please note that if a student needs to receive a Hepatitis B vaccine, the cost can be as high as $100 per injection (total of three injections, each two months apart, so total cost could be $300). Unvaccinated students may only have time to receive the first injection before beginning their clinical rotation and proof of that first injection is sufficient to allow student entrance into the clinical rotation. All immunization proof must be submitted to Distance Education before a clinical rotation can begin.

Additionally, by Dec. 10, 2013 and before beginning clinical rotations, students must purchase liability insurance (options will be discussed at the first lecture class meeting). Reasonably priced liability insurance can be purchased online, www.hpso.com, for approximately $40. Proof of acceptable liability insurance must be submitted to Distance Education before a clinical rotation can begin. If all paperwork has not been submitted by Dec. 10, 2013, the student will receive an incomplete for the class and will have to wait for the next phlebotomy class to be held to complete the clinical rotation.

Due to new policies from Tricore, clinicals are to be completed within a five week period and can only be done Monday through Friday during the week. The clinical schedule will be set up and discussed by the instructor during class. Furthermore, at the time of registration and at the first lecture class meeting, students will be required to sign various documents, including but not limited to agreements for medical records confidentiality, non-discrimination, limits of liability, and clinical dress code.

Because this course is non-credit (certificate only), most scholarship and college financial aid programs do not apply; however, students may seek financial assistance through the Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (for eligibility information phone 575-763-3437), or the New Mexico Workforce Connection under the Workforce Investment Act/WIA (for eligibility information contact the Curry County One Stop Career Center, 575-763-3155). Although most of the costs of this phlebotomy program are eligible under WIA, a student cannot be reimbursed (federal regulations) for the costs of a criminal background check ($65) or for the cost of fingerprinting ($15) because the results could eliminate her/him from the program. If a student has received a private scholarship, it can be applied to the cost of the class. Also, payroll deduction through ENMU can be used if a parent or student is employed by ENMU.

If a student officially withdraws from this course after the first lecture class meeting but before five p.m. on the date of the second lecture class, then she/he will receive 100 percent refund of the course fee ($600) and the money order for a CCHSP background check will be returned to the student. In order to receive a refund from the USPS for the printed value of the money order, a student must have retained the USPS purchase receipt; (the USPS fee for purchase of money order is non-refundable). Purchase of textbooks, supplies, uniforms, and all costs related to immunizations and liability insurance are solely the responsibility of the student and will not be reimbursed by ENMU under any circumstances (except as contracted with NM Workforce Connection/WIA or Vocational Rehab). This policy will apply even if Distance Education needs to change the course schedule or cancel the course, and also will apply if a student officially withdraws from the course (by choice or necessity), or if a student does not successfully complete the course and/or is terminated from the course due to disciplinary action or discovery of criminal disqualification. Also, any costs or losses incurred by the student for transportation/food/housing, or contracting child care, or reduction in work hours, or finance charges on loans/bank accounts, etc., are the student's personal responsibility and will not be reimbursed by ENMU under any circumstances. The cost to have fingerprints taken by local police is nonrefundable.

If a student officially withdraws from this course after the second lecture class meeting but before five p.m. on the date of the third lecture class, then they will receive a 75 percent refund of the course fee, but no refund will be given for the CCHSP background check. If a student is denied enrollment (or must be removed from the ongoing course) because of information discovered in the criminal background check, then a full refund of the course fee ($600) will be given, regardless of the date of such discovery within the semester for which the student was registered. There will be no other refunds given after five p.m. on the date of the third lecture class meeting. In order to officially withdraw from this course and/or request a refund, a student must notify the Department Secretary or Coordinator in Distance Education, either in person or by telephone (575-562-2165), and must notify the instructor, Mike Blankenship, either in person or by telephone. Refunds are made in the form of a check from the Business Office and processing usually takes 10-14 days. Students will be required to sign a letter at the time of initial registration in the Education Building, Room 102, acknowledging that they have read and understand the refund policy for this course.
