Phlebotomy Spotlight...

Christina Wagnon “Don’t doubt yourself, be assertive, confident, and always be kind ! ”

Christina Wagnon completed the 10-week Medical Assistant – Phlebotomist program offered at Spokane Community College in Fall 2016 and shortly after obtained employment working as an MA-Phlebotomist at the Rockwood Cheney clinic. “I started the program in September, graduated in November, and had the job I wanted in March!” said Wagnon. In less than six months, Wagnon received the training she needed to prepare her for entering the workforce: “I could've had a different job sooner but I chose to wait and that's why it took as long as it did. I would definitely recommend this program!” The Center for Workforce & Continuing Education (CWCE) helped Wagnon achieve her goal of becoming a professional Phlebotomist: “I have always been interested in phlebotomy. [CWCE was] so helpful with making sure I had everything I needed before class started and during school. They made it very easy and were very knowledgeable.” “Don’t over think it!” Wagnon shared when asked what advice she would give students who are just getting started with the phlebotomy program. “Don’t doubt yourself, be assertive, confident, and always be kind!” For more information on CWCE’s Phlebotomy program, please contact our Health and Medical Program Specialist at cehealthandmed@ccs.spokane.edu.
