Oregon has a very good selection of schools that offer phlebotomy training programs – they are available in smaller cities through community colleges (which are affordable), not to mention online training opportunities.

The wages are better than the USA average, but the cost of living is also higher. Job growth of 19% might mean that there will be more competition among employers to hire a phlebotomist, which may result in rate increases.

In many cases, phlebotomy programs offered by community colleges are served as bridge programs to a more advanced career path of a medical assistant. For example, a phlebotomy class consists of 13-15 credits, while a medical assistance one may require 45 to 50 credits.

A typical phlebotomy program will include the following classes:

  • Medical terminology
  • Biology
  • Phlebotomy instruction
  • Practicum
  • Professional communication

You can request specific requirements from the school of your choice, however, in most cases, they will be the following:

  • GED
  • Completed First Aid/CPR training
  • Essay or Personal Statement

In most cases, schools may require an immunization list, and some may even conduct a background check or request a pass on a drug test.

The choice of schools for phlebotomists in Oregon is pretty impressive (see next section for details), so you can always find an institution whose entry requirements you will fully satisfy.

Oregon Phlebotomy Certification and Licensure

License required: No

Certification required: No

According to Oregon Health Authority (specifically, Public Health Division), phlebotomists are not required to get a state license and/or certification in order to be allowed to practice.

With that being said, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t consider getting a certification from a reputable third-party institution. In our phlebotomy certification guide, we have reviewed every option and agency out there to help you chose the right credential for you.

Even though certification is not required by the state, many employers still would want you to hold one.

Oregon Phlebotomist Salaries

Hourly and annual wages for phlebotomists in Oregon are significantly higher compared to the national average.

Of course, it is caused by the state’s overall higher cost of living (especially housing and transportation). On the positive side, according to BLS, the job market for phlebotomists is going to grow 19% by 2026. This gives a lot more opportunity to find a better-paid job as a phlebotomist or negotiating a better rate at the current workplace.
