Phlebotomy Technicians obtain quality laboratory specimens in a variety of medical settings, including hospitals, nursing homes, and rehabilitation centers. Outpatient settings include physician offices, home health care agencies, ambulatory care centers, off-site labs, and blood banks.
Phlebotomists typically earn an hourly wage rather than an annual salary, so your pay will fluctuate depending on whether you take a few hours here and there, steadily work full time, or constantly pull 60-hour weeks.
