Academic Preparedness

Northark recognizes the important connection between student success and academic preparedness. Students may be required to complete one or more of the following courses before enrolling in the MAP sequence of courses. Summer and/or intercession courses may be required to graduate within two semesters. Developmental course credits earned do not count towards degree completion requirements.

Students must complete each required course in the remainder of this MAP with a minimum grade of “C” to obtain this degree.

Phlebotomy Technician

The Phlebotomy Technician Certificate of Proficiency introduces the student to basic laboratory techniques and prepares students to perform entry-level tasks in a laboratory setting and to perform venipunctures and dermal punctures. This program provides excellent preparation for other Allied Health programs and is beneficial to individuals currently employed in the Allied Health profession or currently enrolled in another Allied Health program. Upon completion of the required courses, the student is eligible to take the Phlebotomy Certificate Examination offered by the American Society of Clinical Pathology, PBT (ASCP). Students must be 18 years or older in order to enroll in the Phlebotomy Practicum as well as to be certified as a phlebotomy technician.
