We Put the CARE in Career!
St. Luke’s has been delivering exceptional patient care since 1872 and has earned the distinction of being a trusted health care provider because of our quality, safety and patient-centric care. We are proud of our diverse workforce of over 18,000+ employees that bring unique skills and experiences to St. Luke’s and provides award-winning care to our communities. We not only take care of patients, we take care of each other...like a family. At St. Luke’s, we encourage our employees to expand their knowledge and advance their careers in a supportive environment through growth opportunities and continuing education.
This path requires individuals to be hired as a St. Luke's employee. Once hired, the individual is automatically enrolled into a paid, 6-week program. The program includes five weeks of lectures and technique, and one week of clinical internship.
Employment is contingent on agreeing to a 12-month commitment to a St. Luke's phlebotomist position and the successful completion of the St. Luke's School of Phlebotomy program.
Our 6-Week Accelerated Path provides phlebotomy education through the combined delivery of didactic/theory in a classroom setting, as well as clinical experience in our outpatient lab patient service centers. All of our phlebotomy training classes are comprehensive and emphasize a “hands-on” method – each student will learn a variety of phlebotomy techniques in every class, progress to collecting blood specimens on other class members (with supervision), and then ultimately supporting patients at a patient service center. In addition, you will learn the “tricks of the trade” that will help with special patients and difficult draws. A unique feature of our program is that we also focus on pediatric phlebotomy as part of our curriculum.
Prerequisites May Include:
- AAMC standard immunization form
- PA State Police criminal record check
- Child abuse history clearance
- FBI background check/fingerprint clearance
- 11 panel urine drug screen
- Influenza vaccine (dependent on season)
- COVID vaccine
Does not necessarily represent an ‘all inclusive’ list.
- Students must have a high school diploma or GED to be considered eligible for acceptance into either of the program paths.
