CNM Changes Prerequisites for Phlebotomy and Medical Laboratory Technician Programs
The CNM School of Health Wellness & Public Safety will conduct two information sessions to explain the changes. It is highly recommended that students planning on going into either program attend a session. They include:

- PHLB Information Session – Friday, March 28, 3:30-4:30 p.m., Main Campus, Jeanette Stromberg Hall. JS303
Students in the PHLB program learn how to collect and process blood specimens using approved venipuncture and capillary puncture techniques. It is taught in one-term and two-term sessions. The one-term option is a 12-week program taught at the South Valley campus. The two-term option is a 16-week program taught at the Westside campus.
The MLT AAS degree program prepares students to perform clinical laboratory testing which aids the physician in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases.
