The Phlebotomy program prepares individuals, under the supervision of healthcare professionals, to draw blood samples from patients using a variety of procedures. Phlebotomists draw blood for tests, transfusions, research, or blood donations. Some explain their work to patients and provide assistance when patients have questions/concerns after their blood is drawn.
Phlebotomy technicians are primarily stationed in doctor’s office or hospitals, and will routinely work directly with patients and families. Employment of phlebotomists is projected to grow twenty-five percent (25%) through 2024, much faster than the average for all occupations. Hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, blood donor centers, and other locations will need phlebotomists to perform blood work.
