In addition, phlebotomists also work with laboratory personnel to manage, process and transport specimens collected from patients. In some settings, phlebotomists may perform bedside testing. Phlebotomists work in dynamic, fast-paced environments and are challenged each day with situations requiring specialized knowledge and skill. Hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices, nursing homes, research settings, and reference labs all employ phlebotomists. Skilled phlebotomists are in great demand now and many more are projected to be needed in the future.

Robeson Community College offers a six month program in both fall and spring that will train you to be a phlebotomist. You will receive intense individualized phlebotomy training in theory and skills in the first three months of the course. During the second three months, you will actually practice phlebotomy at hospital and clinic settings supervised by highly skilled professionals.

Upon successful completion of the program, you will be eligible to take the Phlebotomy examination given by the ASCP Board of Certification.
