The prerequisite for PHB 101 is “prior or concurrent enrollment in HSC 112 (Medical Terminology) with a grade of C or better and high school graduate.” However, the coordinator’s preference is students take HSC 112 before PHB 101. If a student does not place into ENG 101, the coordinator recommends completing HSC 112 before taking PHB 101. Students who place into ENG 098 and/or RDG 090 should take these classes before attempting HSC 112. HSC 112 is a difficult class for students who place into Developmental English and/or Reading.
All students must complete the Phlebotomy 102 clinical externship experience in two semesters.
Therefore, if a student is beyond the two-semester limit as outlined above. For the student to be eligible for PHB 102 placement a student would need to re-take PHB 101 principles and practice. In addition to be eligible for PHB 102 placement this includes completion of all heath requirements and Medcom modules.
