RMDC Phlebotomy School

Learn from the professionals that draw blood every day! Our phlebotomy school, known as RMDC Phlebotomy School, is an inexpensive and condensed curriculum designed to educate future or existing health care professionals.

This fun and exciting class helps CNAs, MAs or those entering into the nursing profession get a head start in phlebotomy. The class is designed to teach proper technique and help inexperienced health care professionals get over the fear of drawing blood. Gain confidence through demonstrations and hands on experience at an actual laboratory. The class setting is small with significant one-on-one attention.

Patients always remember a bad blood draw and anyone can “poke” a patient. Through the skills taught in this class phlebotomy skills will transition to a more positive experience for patients!
