What are typical phlebotomist salaries? Do some companies pay a lot more for this position than others? What does a top earner make in this field?

What skills should you learn to increase your salary?

I have asked this in other places but never get an answer-do phlebotomists in CALIFORNIA make more because of the mandatory certification rule? Are jobs easier to obtain? Boy,if this is the case,then it really is important that ALL states start taking steps to get the same rules and regulations in their own state. Until then,a lot of places will be hiring whoever they want,including a lot of poorly trained workers,which could be a reason why so many phlebs are having problems finding a job.

Please tell me, how and where did you started your career as phlebotomist? I finish the school in UCLA in Nov, I got my certificate in Jan and since than I applied everywhere I found an opened position. All the hospitals and Labs want just phlebotomist with experience. How can I get this experience if nobody want to give me this chance? I enjoy drowing bllod, and I would like to start a creer in Clinical Laboratory.

Yes, if you plan to work as phlebotomits in CA you need a California Certificate. This is easy to get it as long you have a National one. I have NCCT one and I just sent to Sacramento my papers from school to prove that I have 59 hours (theory) and 40 venipunctures & skin punctures + a copy of my NCCT certificate. To find the address access the website:

My husband wants to move to SC or NC. Actualy we've been in NC in March this year to see Mortganton area. I liked but just for vacantion. I don't know anything about jobs there, and I just got a new job here. I would like to get more experience and then...we'll see!
Regarding the salary, how much can you earn as Phlebotomist or Lab tech in SC? Here, in LA county, you can start between 12-17/hrs, depend of the hospital. If you have experience they pay you more (18-19 or 20). I don't know how much can you earn in San Diego but what I know is that as a Nurse(RN) in San Diego County they pay you less.

Hello all I am new to this site. I live in Oklahoma and I have been a Phlebotomist for over 10 yrs hospital and clinical settings. I have taught phlebotomy to LPN students. I am very experienced in all age groups including neonatal. I am looking to provide my services to patients or people in general that have a really hard time getting to lab/Dr's offices for lab work. I know that homehealth providers can do the same. But want to contract myself not work for someone else. Could someone who has info on how i can get started???? Thank you inadvance.

have you thought about applying for overseas contract jobs? Your experience are highly in demand in Kuwait, but you work for US government. I believe you can make over $90,000 annually with no US tax. I used to work in Kuwait as a Security Guard for the US Army base. I take home over $8,000 monthly depending on how much overtime I worked.

I couldn't get on the web pages you noted on your reply. If you know why that would be helpful. I have been doing Phlebotomy for over 20 years. But i was certified back in the late 80's and never had to take another test to work back east. So anymore help you have would be great and maybe a school could be helpful to refresh my memory. Thank you again

Sorry, went to school in Tx. But there are schools in CA. You just have to do your research and find out which one offers the best courses and there past graduates statistics. There are student loans out there to help curtail the cost. I travel wherever I'm needed, right now I'm in Atlantic City NJ. But I've been to CA twice, NY twice, WA state, Delaware. When you travel you can specify where you would like to go.

For those who are interested in a Phlebotomy program in South of California, UCLA-Los Angeles, where I've been, I think is the best.
www.cpc.mednet.ucla.edu/SRRS/Programs/ProgramDetailUser.aspx
They take care of everything inclusively NCCT exam (the national exam), all we have to do is to study,and is very easy.
Last year when I've been there was cheaper and I think they will increase the amount every year.
Good luck everybody!

I have been told that you don't have to have your certificate to get a job. Any info that anyone can help with would be greatly appreciated. I don't want to work in a hospital due to the fact that I am pregnant and I will have to put the baby in daycare, and most hospital shifts are pretty strange. I am hoping to find a job working for quest diagnostics or lab corp

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND SCHOOL! I WORK AT A MENTAL HOSPITAL AS A MENTAL TECH, I USE TO WATCH THE PHLEBS COME IN DRAW BLOOD ON THE PATIENTS AND LEAVE. I FOUND A SCHOOL FOR PHLEBOTOMY TRAINING IT WAS FOR 9 WEEKS, AND ONLY ON MONDAYS. I FINISHED THE COURSE IN NOVEMBER '06. AS SOON I GOT MY CERTIFICATE THE HOSPITAL GOT RID OF THE LAB PEOPLE AND HIRED AN OUTSIDE MAJOR HOSPITAL. WHEN THOSE GIRLS CAME IN I ASKED THEM WHO THEY WORKED FOR AND THEIR SUPERVISORS #. I JUST KEPT CALLING VERY POLITELY, MAYBE ABOUT ONCE A WEEK TELLING THEM THAT I WAS ALREADY A TECH THEIR AND I JUST FINISHED SCHOOL AND I HAD NO EXPERIENCE, JUST IN CLASS ON EACH OTHER. BUT I WAS WILLING TO EVEN DO VOLUNTARY WORK, SO I COULD GET THAT UNDER MY BELT. AFTER ABOUT 4 1/2 MONTHS I ALMOST GAVE UP. THE SUPERVISOR CALLED ME IN FOR AN INTERVIEW I TOLD HER I WAS ALREADY CNA CERTIFIED, AND THE HOSPITAL I WORKED AT TRAINED ME TO BE A MENTAL HEALTH TECHNICIAN, AND I WAS NOT SCARED TO STICK THEM. I WAS SO ANXIOUS, JUST BECAUSE I TOLD MY CO-WORKERS THAT THOSE GIRLS WOULD BE ME ONE DAY.SHE TOLD ME I GOT THE JOB! MAKING $16/HR, I STARTED IN MAY '07, TRAINED FOR 3 WEEKS, GOT 3 DAYS OFF & SHE TOLD ME I WOULD BE ON MY OWN STARTING SUNDAY. I ALMOST POOPED MY PANTS. I HAD TO PRINT LABELS, SORT BY FLOOR LEARN HOW TO DO DIFFICULT STICKS ON MY OWN,SPIN, BAG, LABEL URINE, STOOL & WOUND COULTURES ALL ALONE. I NOW WORK IN THE LAB BY MYSELF, NO CO-WORKERS, OR SUPERVISORS REMEMBER I WORK AT A HOSPITAL THAT HIRED PHLEBS FROM ANOTHER HOSPITAL. IF I NEED HELP I HAVE TO CALL THE OTHER HOSPITAL, IF I GET AN ANSWER. I EVEN HAVE TO CALL AN ANSWERING MACHINE TO LET THEM KNOW IM DONE. MY HOURS ARE 5:30am TO 10:30am IF IM RUNNING LATE I HAVE TO CALL THE COURIER SERVICE FOR A PICK UP TIME. SO ALL IN ALL GO FOR IT I LLLOOOVVEE IT!

I know is hard! In special here, in LA it is!
I was lucky because I worked as ER Teck for almost 2 years in another hospital but I got CPT1 position in another hospital. The hospital where I worked didn't wort to hire me because "I don't have experience!!!...". As you said, how cand you get experience if nobody give you a chance?
I got my certificate in Dec.2006 and since then I applied continuuuuuuuu......and I got this job in June. Everyday I spent a lot of time appling everywhere. Careerbuider.com is the website where I found almost all the agencies or hospitals. Also, each hospital has the own website and you can try to find those wbpages for all the hospitals from your area.
And something elese: would be better to know somebody in lab or in hospital who can recommend you. In CA it is very important!!!!!!!

GOOD LUCK!

Hi EB,

I checked out the program requirements online and the one I'm most concerned about is the personal health insurance requirement. I'm a diabetic and have hypertension, which are both controlled with medication and exercise (I run and cycle), but I've been unable to get or afford health insurance. Will the program work with me to help me find a health insurance provider who will accept folks with pre-existing conditions that is also affordable?

I'm part-time at work, so not eligible for insurance through them, either.

When I was in nursing school in the 1980s, the program provided students with a student insurance program, but I think it was just liability insurance, not health insurance.

Better to call UCLA or e-mail them and ask about it.
