Employment Outlook

Phlebotomists are specially trained to collect blood from a patient for laboratory analysis. They provide an important service to the health care industry. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (bls.gov), employment of phlebotomists is projected to grow 27 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations. Hospitals, diagnostic laboratories, blood donor centers, and other locations will need phlebotomists to perform blood work.

Blood analysis remains an essential function in medical laboratories and hospitals. Demand for phlebotomists will remain high as doctors and other healthcare professionals require blood work for analysis and diagnoses. However, federal health legislation will expand the number of patients who have access to health insurance, increasing patient access to medical care.

Phlebotomists typically work in hospitals, clinics, physician's offices, medical and surgical centers, insurance agencies, blood and plasma donation centers, U.S. Armed Forces, governmental medical facilities and agencies, university research labs, and elderly car facilities.
