What to expect in phlebotomist training programs
Phlebotomists draw blood from patients that laboratories or health care facilities will use for a variety of purposes. These professionals may also have other tasks associated with their work, including explaining procedures to patients. They may also help if a patient has an issue with their procedure, such as a negative reaction.
What many students enjoy about these types of training programs is the short time period that’s required to complete them — sometimes as few as three months, while others may take a little longer. That’s why it’s important to compare as many programs as you can before you decide. You want to make sure the program you choose is the best fit for you and your particular situation.
