Graduate Becomes a Certified Phlebotomist

Dec 16, 2013

Leah Westrick, a graduate of the phlebotomy program, was the first student at the Indianapolis Campus to sit for the certification exam, and passed.  When asked why she came to National for phlebotomy she replied: “I wanted to work in the medical field, and thought if I got my phlebotomy certification that would get my foot in the door.”  Leah also admitted that she was nervous about taking the exam and that she studied all the material from the phlebotomy courses she had taken to prepare.  Once she saw that she had passed she was excited that all of her hard work had paid off. Leah plans to work in a hospital lab where she can learn numerous techniques.  She has also applied to medical school and someday hopes to become a physician.  Patricia Ridge, director of healthcare education was very proud and excited for Leah, stating “Leah is a bright student, and I have full confidence she will succeed in any endeavor, and I have already sent a glowing recommendation to the admission board for medical school.”
