Arizona has one of the highest projected job growth rates for phlebotomists across the nation (and Utah, too). Even California, which is often considered a very hot market for phlebotomists has “only” 29% growth rate.
At the same time, the average graduation rate is around 40 percent, which is quite low.
These two facts, combined, create a vacuum of new jobs for phlebotomists that will need to be filled within the next years.
Most of Arizona's phlebotomy programs can be accomplished within 3 to 8 months. For example, shorter programs will include about 30 hours of lectures and 10 hours of externships or internships.
Common subjects include Patient Preparation, Collection Techniques, Specimen Processing, Safety, and Compliance Instruction.
In Arizona, requirements for enrolment are not different than in other states. These include:
