CPCT Students

Cabell Midland High School is proud to announce a 100% passing rate on the National Healthcareer Association Certified Patient Care Technician Exam (NHA CPCT).

Students in the Health Sciences and Wellness Academy studying in the Patient Care Technician Program are now Nationally Certified Patient Care Technicians.  This certification gives them the ability to gain employment immediately upon graduation. St. Mary's Medical Center has accepted applications from over half of the newly certified technicians in the program. Certified Patient Care Technicians perform EKGs, lab work, phlebotomy, and direct patient care.

The students also had the opportunity to take the American Society of Phlebotomy Technicians (ASPT) National Exam.  To qualify to sit for the ASPT, students had to perform 50 successful venipunctures and 10 capillary sticks as well as 12 EKGs this year.  Several students chose to take the exam and are now Certified Phlebotomist Technicians (CPT).
