A Medical Career as a Licensed Phlebotomist

The role of a Phlebotomy Technician may include maintaining test tubes, medical instruments, and labeling blood. A phlebotomist will get both laboratory and clinical experience. The ability to make patients feel safe and comfortable will not go unnoticed. For most patients, needles are not their best friends, but they will be grateful to anyone who can draw their blood on the first try.

Passing the Phlebotomy Certification Exam can be used as a stepping stone to other health care careers, such as becoming an RN (Registered Nurse) or an MLT (Medical Lab Technician). Current statistics project that the employment of Phlebotomists will increase by 17% from 2019 to 2029. This rate is much faster than the average for other occupations.
