The job market for phlebotomists is booming in Ohio. With a 21-percent job growth rate by 2026, the state is among the first ten states across the nation that need most of the phlebotomists.

According to BLS, there will be over one thousand new jobs created for phlebotomy techs within the next five years, and it doesn’t take into consideration those technicians who will be replaced because of retirement.

As in other states, most phlebotomy programs in Ohio take from 3 to 6 months to accomplish. The exact program duration depends on several factors.

For example, program A could offer CPR training and certification as part of its curriculum. Program B would require you to pass a CPR (First Aid) course before you send your application. As a result, Program A would take longer to accomplish.

This is one of the reasons why we don’t recommend considering program length as a key factor.

Apart from length – the curriculum is pretty much unified across the majority of schools. Core subjects are Phlebotomy and Phlebotomy Clinical Practice. All additional subjects are included at a specific school’s discretion and include the following: Terminology, Basic Laboratory Techniques, Biology, and Anatomy.

Standard requirements for individuals who wish to become a phlebotomy student in Ohio are:

  • be 18 years of age or more
  • have a GED or high-school diploma

Those with experience in the field can only accomplish several credit hours to get a certificate.

Ohio Phlebotomy Certification and Licensure

License required: No

Certification required: No

No state license or state certificate is required in Ohio to start practicing phlebotomy. However, as mentioned above, the job market for this occupation in Buckeye State is at its peak. Both for prospective workers and employers.

In this situation having a voluntary phlebotomy certification is practically a must.

Yes, there are many job openings, but competition for the better-paid ones and those that offer better hours or additional perks is still significant.

Having a certification on hand is extremely beneficial from one side, and quite easy to obtain from the other.

Ohio Phlebotomist Salaries

New phlebotomists can realistically expect to start with about a $13 hourly wage, with more

As in the case of many other states that need a lot of phlebotomists to enter the job market immediately, Ohio offers very competitive rates for those technicians who are only starting out.

However, the top-earning percentiles of professionals in Ohio actually make less than their colleagues from other states, on average.

Even considering the fact that Ohio’s cost if living is generally lower than that of the USA average, the picture is not very promising.

We recommend taking an advanced level of certification(s), like CPT 2 from NHA as you gain five or more years of hands-on experience. This way you will be able to ask for a rate increase.

Here’s the comparison of Ohio phlebotomy salaries to other states (average):
