Legacy Healthcare Careers, a smaller family-owned school in the Mid Cities section of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, offers learners the unique opportunity to earn two medical credentials at once. Students now have the chance to train to become both a certified nursing assistant (CNA) and certified phlebotomy technician (CPT) altogether in a few short weeks to ensure the maximum preparation for the local job market. Call (682)626-5266 for more information.
The nurse aide training program (NATP) prepares students to obtain state certification as a certified nursing assistant. CNAs are vital members of the healthcare team who work under the supervision of licensed nurses to deliver basic nursing care and assistance with activities of daily living such as feeding and personal hygiene. CNAs assist clients with mobility, meal service, grooming, exercises and other aspects of care.
CNAs can be found working at a wide range of healthcare employment settings. CNAs secure employment at assisted living facilities, clinics, personal care group homes, hospitals, hospice organizations, skilled nursing facilities, managed care organizations, insurance companies, home health companies and other healthcare settings. Job openings are plentiful and expected to continue to increase due to the aging of the Baby Boomer generational cohort.
The phlebotomy technician training program prepares learners to obtain national certification as a certified phlebotomy technician (CPT), also known as a phlebotomist. Phlebotomy technicians are allied healthcare professionals who collect blood and non-blood specimens by way of blood withdrawal (venipuncture), finger and heel sticks (capillary puncture), and other methods.
Phlebotomy technicians are multi-skilled allied healthcare professionals who tend to find employment at an impressive range of healthcare settings. Phlebotomy technicians can be found working at acute care hospitals, reference laboratories, blood banks, mobile donation centers, plasma centers, clinics, multi specialty medical practices, and other types of healthcare settings.
