What is a Phlebotomist?
A phlebotomy technician draws blood from patients/blood donors and performs basic point-of-care testing (ex: checking blood glucose levels). Phlebotomists prepare blood, urine, and other specimens for lab testing and help to explain the blood-drawing procedures to patients. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job outlook for phlebotomists is excellent, with job growth predicted to grow much faster than average.
