New Mexico phlebotomy program requirements
Phlebotomy is an attractive entry-level position because it pays well, and you can obtain a certificate in a relatively short amount of time. Before you enroll, you must meet the following requirements:
- Be 18 years of age or older
- Have a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent
- Have all your shots pathogens like hepatitis, tetanus, tuberculosis, etc
Schools must be accredited by a national organization such as the American society of phlebotomy technicians (ASPTC) or the national phlebotomy association (NPT). There are various organizations like these that provide tests and oversee certifications.
Accredited education programs will provide both in-class and clinical training to prepare students for the certification test. In order to become a CPT, you must display technical and interpersonal skills. Some of the subjects you’ll study include:
- Medical terminology
- The proper blood drawing procedure
- Lab testing
- Handling samples
- HIPAA and OSHA regulations
- Professional issues
Once you finish training, you can sit for the certification test. The test you take will depend on which accreditation body your school is associated with. There are two types of certifications. Level 1 certification allows you to perform skin punctures and venipunctures.
Training for level 1 certification is focused on venipunctures and dermal punctures. A level two certification allows you to perform dermal punctures, venipuncture, and arterial puncture to collect blood.
Certifications last for two years. To keep your certification active, you must complete a certain number of CEUs (continuing education units). The purpose of CEUs is to keep your skills fresh and keep you updated on the latest developments in phlebotomy.
California, Washington, Louisiana, and Nevada are the only states that currently require a certification to work as a phlebotomist. However, certification will help you land jobs, especially if you don’t have experience yet.
There are two main healthcare settings where CPTs work, outpatient services and inpatient services. If you work in a research laboratory, you may be doing more testing and technical work. If you work in a healthcare facility, you’ll be working with patients and coworkers.
If you work in an inpatient or outpatient facility, you can expect to be multitasking much of the time if you have a high volume of patients. You’ll be handling and organizing samples to prepare them for testing.
