What does New York have to offer to future phlebotomists? One of the highest salaries across the country and 51 ground schools to choose from (not to mention an array of online programs).
29-percent job growth is faster than the national average, which means 1030 new phlebotomy are being created annually.
New York phlebotomy programs are pretty serious about the preparation of a well-rounded healthcare professional (even entry-level).
You will learn the basics of Human Biology and Medical Terminology. Some programs also include CPR and first-aid curriculum.
In programs that last about one year an entire semester is devoted to clinical training, which is arranged by the school.
Apart from standard educational pre-requisites of a high-school diploma or GED, those who want to get enrolled in a phlebotomy class in New York will also need to submit a complete medical examination form and have all their immunizations (including Hepatitis B) in order.
Unsurprisingly, most of the schools are located in and around NYC, but some of them can be also found in smaller cities like Albany, Buffalo, and Rochester.
