Undoubtedly, 2020 has had a profound impact on the logistics of education. Many schools and educators are turning to new ways of learning to better accommodate the changing needs of their students.. The popularity of what is often referred to as hybrid learning has grown in this past year. Hybrid learning is an educational model where some students attend class in-person, while others join the class virtually from home. Educators teach remote and in-person students at the same time using tools like video conferencing hardware and software. Heart to Heart Healthcare Training is joining this growing model with its unique blend of in person lab and online training to become a Phlebotomy Technician.
“Hybrid learning offers the best of both worlds for our phlebotomy program. The online lecture and theory platform give you the flexibility to complete course work at a time of day convenient for you, re-watch lectures, re-watch demonstrations, pause videos and take notes at your own pace. Students come to in-person labs with a strong foundation of phlebotomy theory and can get right to work applying their knowledge through clinical skills. Our labs give you not only hands on practice but face to face interaction with peers and the ability to ask questions to the instructor. Physical or e-books are available based on your preference.”

To be a successful phlebotomist it takes not only skills in the medical field that is learned through lectures and lab training but also those personal assets that drive all successful people.

Communication. Being able to communicate well is also central for this position. Explaining procedures to patients and actively listening to them is critical.
Altruism. The requirements for success in phlebotomy on a personal level are quite simple but significant. In general, an ideal candidate must be interested in working to help people. You will be working very closely with patients, so it is important to have compassion. Demonstrating patience and understanding towards patients is key.
Fine motor skills. This is a desired characteristic in a person who draws blood for donation or medical analysis. If you lack dexterity this will lead to unnecessary distress for the patient. For instance, if a person cannot find a vein and inserts a needle incorrectly or multiple punctures are administered then vessel damage might occur.
Detail Oriented. Carelessness will not get you too far. Mistakes such as mislabeled samples, blood contamination and incorrect blood quantities can cause a wide range of hiccups.
