Since you do not need a bachelor???s degree, the cost is fairly minimal. About 80 classroom/externship hours are required, which can be done in 4 weeks. You will receive all the tools needed to pass your certification exam.

Phlebotomists Do Important Work

Blood is an important health resource for pretty obvious reasons. Transfusions alone save millions of lives per year; without the careful and precise work of phlebotomy technicians, patients??? lives would be put at risk. Health testing relies on blood samples, which phlebotomists take from patients??? veins. Blood banks are an important way for members of the community to contribute to everyone???s overall health, and their mobile vehicles are recognizable at colleges, high schools, churches, fairs, libraries, and at community events. Phlebotomists are important and respected members of the community.

 

Get Experiences Working With People.

Some medical tech jobs don???t offer a lot of interpersonal interaction, especially with patients. It???s especially important that Phlebotomists develop strong people skills. They???re asked to comfort adults, teens and children through the blood-drawing process. There are people of all ages who are afraid of needles. Their reaction to them varies, from general squeamishness to stronger anxiety-related reactions. In phlebotomy, you???ll have the ability to work in a fast-paced environment with patients and experienced medical professionals alike. It is likely we all know at least one person, if not ourselves, who is a little squeamish around needles. One of the most rewarding experiences in life is bringing comfort to others. Our skilled professionals have trained students in this art and want you to become a part of this life-changing opportunity.
