Workforce Solutions at Northeast State is offering a fall class in phlebotomy, which is projected to be one of the fastest growing health-care occupations in the next decade.
Phlebotomists specialize in drawing blood and work in hospitals, clinics, medical offices, laboratories, and public health facilities. Phlebotomists are crucial members of a medical team, providing quality laboratory samples and patient/donor care in a variety of medical settings.
Individuals interested in starting a career in the medical field, prospective patient care technicians, current nurses, or those looking to develop skills may be good candidates for the program. The training includes theory and hands-on instruction during the class. The course includes labs in a hospital setting and 100 documented sticks.
Students will gain the technical knowledge required to assist them in passing the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) certification examination, which is included in the course.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of phlebotomists is projected to grow 27 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations.
