Basic Venipuncture for Allied Health Professionals NMED 1117

Nuclear Medicine Part-time Studies Course

Course details

This ONLINE course is designed for students of allied health training programs (such as Cardiac Sciences), allied health practitioners (such as LPNs) or individuals working under a healthcare professional. Prospective students who don't fit into one of these categories must contact the Program Head for Nuclear Medicine to seek permission to take the course. This course provides basic theory and procedure for performing simple venipuncture by syringe and needle, evacuated system and butterfly needle for the purpose of either blood collection or injection of a substance into the bloodstream. This ONLINE course includes graphics and video clips demonstrating equipment and procedures. Successful students will have the requisite knowledge but will not have sufficient practice and skill to be competent in basic venipuncture from this course alone. See Learning Outcomes for details. Following completion of the course, students who are not part of a program with clinical practicum may apply for recognition of clinical experience if they are already working in an environment where a qualified professional is able to supervise, assess and verify performed venipuncture procedures. Workshop: Students can register for an introductory one day hands-on workshop which is held after the online course ends. The workshop only prepares students for their clinical experience or practicum and not competency in Venipuncture. Due to safety concerns, students must successfully pass the online course in order to be able to attend the workshop. Registered students must abide by the BCIT Student Code of Conduct stated in the online course. For students able to attend the BCIT Campus laboratory workshop, register for the section (CRN) including BOTH the ONLINE course AND Laboratory workshop. For students at a distance, register for the online course only.
