Phlebotomy Classes in Indianapolis

  1. Hi Everyone!

    I am a PCT in a hospital as I attend nursing school. We are expected to do blood draws and would like to take a class to strengthen my skills. I have contacted Ivy Tech but they don't have a class available this fall (only the externship).
    Do you know of any classes I can take in Indianapolis?

    Thanks for your help

    I would really suggest spending some time in the lab or the ER to learn this.

    There's no reason for you to spend time and $$ on a class. It's really just a matter of practice, practice and more practice.

    (PS: I SUCK at phlebotomy- and have been a nurse for almost 40 years!)

    Thank you so much for your advice! I will do that. PS, you probably rock at blood draws😃

    Nope- I suck. Oddly, I'm pretty good at IVs.


    Stuff IN the vein? Got it! Stuff OUT of the vein? Not so much!

    totally recommend what meanmaryjean suggested; its all about practice and oddly I suffer from a similar problem, I can start an IV no problem, but straight sticks are not frequently my friend.
