Phlebotomists have the option of finding work in hospitals, blood donation centers and on-site blood testing facilities. The choice of where to practice depends upon the desires of each individual. Hospitals may offer more competitive wages, but they are harder to gain employment due to a high volume of applicants. On-site testing centers offer an attractive option because they provide the added perk of the ability to travel while working.
Overall, the medical industry is constantly growing and making advancements in the way we treat patients. Therefore careers in the industry are expected to continue to grow steadily for at least the next few years. As the healthcare industry expands through technological advances in medicine along with the growth and aging of the population, there will be an increased need for all types of healthcare workers.
