5 Reasons For Choosing A Phlebotomy Career

Though you may never have heard the term phlebotomist, you have likely utilized one's services many times in the course of your life, even if you did not realize it at the time. Phlebotomy is the profession of drawing blood so that it may be stored for future use or tested for health concerns. A phlebotomy career requires training but provides many lucrative benefits.


The medical profession is one of the most short-staffed industries to be found. Each year, hospitals and offices have to make due with less doctors and nurses than they would like. These doctors and nurses may not have the time to perform routine tasks, and thus delegate them to technicians. A phlebotomist is one of these technicians, an expert at drawing blood who will ensure that a patient is ready and willing to have blood taken, then keep the blood fresh so that it may be transferred to another location (or another persons' arteries). Needless to say, a phlebotomy career necessitates not being squeamish around blood. Why should you become a phlebotomist? There are five major factors that make it a rewarding career:


No matter what part of the country you live in, there are always persons needing intensive medical care.

Whether you want to work in a hospital with other phlebotomists or you would rather treat patients in a smaller clinic, there is no difficulty finding employment upon graduation.
