What is a Phlebotomist?
Phlebotomy is the process of withdrawing blood for the purpose of medical testing. The person who withdrawals the blood is called the Phlebotomist. Phlebotomists are hired in hospitals, doctor offices, blood donation centers, dialysis centers, plasma centers and more.
Why become a Phlebotomist?
As a phlebotomist you have the option to work in several different healthcare settings and impact several patients each day. If you are caring and compassionate about helping others, this is a job for you. This is a great introduction into the healthcare field and can be used a stepping stone into another career or a career on its own. According the Bureau of Labor Statistics the demand for Phlebotomists will continue to be 25% higher than all other occupations. The average hourly wage for a Phlebotomist is anywhere from $12.00 to $18.80.
