Students acquire skills in communication, leadership, human relations, and employment; learn techniques for collecting blood specimens by capillary or venipuncture on adults, children and infants; learn how to attend to the comfort and well-being of the patient while performing blood collecting duties; and observe safety policies and procedures both in the classroom and clinical settings.
