Phlebotomy Technician

Campbellsville University’s Phlebotomy certification program teaches students to draw blood for tests, transfusions, and other purposes.

Generally, phlebotomy technicians can find work in hospitals, blood donation centers, doctor’s offices, and various laboratories. Depending on the setting, phlebotomists will draw blood, ensure that a patient’s sample is properly labeled, enter the patient’s information into a health database, and prepare medical instruments like needles and vials. In many cases, the phlebotomist may be the only medical practitioner to interact with a patient during their visit. Therefore, they must ensure that patients feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible when drawing blood.

Spanning three to four months of study, the phlebotomy training includes 42 hours of classroom time and 100 hours of clinical experience, with a maximum class size of 8 students.

This affordable program includes tuition, textbooks, a drug screen, background check, malpractice insurance, and the national exam fee (payment plans are also available). We are also accredited by the National Center for Competency Testing (NCCT).

To be admitted into the phlebotomy program, applicants must be at least 18 years old, have a high school diploma or GED, pass a drug test and criminal background check, and provide proof of immunizations.

According to the BLS, employment of phlebotomy technicians is expected to grow 27 percent between 2012 and 2022. In 2012, phlebotomists held around 101,300 positions, and were paid a median annual wage of $29,730 ($14.29 an hour). Approximately 27,100 new jobs will be created during this time, making a phlebotomy certification even more valuable.

Most phlebotomists hold full-time positions, and some who work in hospitals and labs are required to take on night shifts and weekends.
