With the ability to work in a wide variety of medical settings that include hospitals, nursing homes, blood donation centers, and community health centers, phlebotomists are a vital part of any healthcare provider and, because of the high demand for blood samples as part of medical diagnosis, the job outlook for phlebotomists is increasingly positive..
Within the healthcare setting, phlebotomists are responsible for a range of critical tasks, such as:
The act of taking blood is a vital diagnostic tool, able to identify disorders such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, hepatitis, HIV, AIDS, and host of other potentially deadly medical conditions.
In May 2018, the median annual wage for a professional working as a phlebotomist was $34,480, which translates into a wage of $16.59 per hour. The lowest 10% of wage earners grossed less than $25,020 per year, while the highest wage earners in this career grossed more than $49,060.
The average salary for a phlebotomist in Nevada is around $37,010 per year, with the top 10% of phlebotomists earning $50,700, which is above the national average.
Since blood work and analysis will remain a vital job function in hospitals and healthcare laboratories, the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) expects the phlebotomist career to grow by nearly 23% between 2019 and 2028. The projected growth rate is much faster than the expected job growth rate for other careers.
