Phlebotomy Technician Salaries

Health-care is one of the few industries in which job availability has increased since the recession.

More than 400,000 jobs were added to health-care in 2010, and the demand for certified specialists is expected to increase at nearly 15% over the next ten years.

Specifically, the employment of phlebotomy technicians is predicted by The Bureau of Labor Statistics to increase steadily through the year 2016.

A career in phlebotomy offers a future of financial security, as well as a rewarding sense of self-worth for the right individual.

A phlebotomist, or phlebotomy technician, specializes in the collection and preparation of blood samples. Phlebotomists are responsible for providing patients with an atmosphere of trust and confidence as they carefully draw blood samples in a consistently skillful and safe manner.

One must be comfortable with handling needles and blood on a daily basis, as well as interacting professionally and compassionately with patients.

According to PayScale, phlebotomy technicians with a certification from the American Society of Clinical Pathology earn an average annual salary between $21,500 and $37,500.

Variations to phlebotomist salaries and phlebotomy technician pay scales vary by location, employer type and experience.

In hospitals, phlebotomist salaries average between $20,500 and $34,000.

Private company compensation for phlebotomy technician pay can average anywhere between $30,500 and $40,000. New York, Texas and North Carolina are among the highest-paying states for phlebotomists.
