Hi my name is Theresa, I attended the November Phlebotomy training program at Phlebotomy Plus. I have just finished reading the last few reviews, and was compelled to write of my own experience at this wonderful learning establishment. I was a nurse up until a back injury prevented me from continuing in that profession, but I know that the healthcare field is what I love. I researched and found Phlebotmy Plus, I came out here from New Jersey, to attend this school, which in the healthcare field is ranked 3rd in the nation for turning out the BEST phlebotomists. \r
I won't kid you, it is a tough course, you need commitment, and focus. You're going to have to give up your social life for the month that you attend school. You'll attend classes, study into the night, but in the end your will walk out of here with the knowledge to begin a new career. You won't just have book learning you will have practial experience, and the confidence that YOU can do this job...and its not just a job, when you're done you will have a career to be proud of, you will be a respected member of the medical profession!\r
I have to tell you something, one time when my class was in the lab, doing clinical practice one of the instructors did raise her voice....ok she yelled. Let me tell you why, one of my fellow class mates had just removed a syringe frome someones are and was waving it around (a dirty needle, waved around). \r
One of the first things said to you on the first day of class is SAFETY your wellbeing depends on you protecting yourself and others from sharps sticks! this information is gone over and over before you ever walk into the lab. There are dangers, but they are preventable dangers. If you are inmature, a crybaby, someone who needs to be coddled this is not the course for you. The medical profession isn't the right choice for you. But if you strong, caring, willing to work hard, and want a career to be proud of this is the place to come....Good Luck!
Pros: Knowledgable instructors who've done the job!
Cons: I don't have a single negative statement about this school
