The demand for phlebotomists is continuing to rise around the world, and in the United States, is predicted to grow by more than 10 percent over the next decade. Many people are unaware exactly what phlebotomists do, but if you’ve ever donated blood, had medical tests done or been in the hospital before, you’ve likely met a phlebotomist without even knowing it. Phlebotomists are the medical workers who collect blood for testing and collection for donations. They may also work in research laboratories to help with blood collection for research projects.
As a phlebotomist, I know first-hand how little people understand about the work we do. Often, when people that I meet inquire about my occupation, they look confused by my reply. After I tell them exactly what a phlebotomist does, they want to learn more about what kind of training goes into the position and exactly what my job is like
Because I love what I do and enjoy telling others about it, I decided to start the Phlebotomy Course blog. My goal is to teach others about the field of phlebotomy and help those who might be interested in becoming a phlebotomist get the phlebotomy training and experience necessary for success. I am fully committed to providing accurate and timely news about phlebotomy careers and phlebotomy education and training. As a result, I’ll be updating the blog frequently, so check back often to learn more.
I love hearing from readers, so if you have a particular question about phlebotomy, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me using the “Contact Us” page. I may even use your question as a blog post topic to help others!
