New Hampshire phlebotomy program requirements
Phlebotomy programs vary by state, but most schools require that applicants have a high school diploma or equivalent. Some programs may also require students to complete prerequisite courses in anatomy and physiology, as well as basic math and English. Level one certification requirements:
- H.S. diploma or equivalent
- 18 years of age
- Immunization records
Certification exams are administered by an organization such as the National Healthcare Association (NHA) or the American Medical Technologists (AMT). Once you have earned your certification, you will need to renew it every few years by completing continuing education credits (CEUs). Most of the associations that provide the exams also provide continuing education. The purpose of CEUs is to keep you up to date on the latest developments in the field and refresh your skills.
Schools that offer phlebotomy certification provide students with the skills they need to safely and effectively collect blood specimens from patients. They also teach students about the different types of blood draws, as well as how to screen patients properly for contraindications prior to the procedure.
Subjects covered are:
Anatomy and Physiology
Blood Collection Procedure
Laws and Regulations
Phlebotomy is a medical procedure that requires precision and care. In order to become a CPT, you will need to have exceptional hand-eye coordination, as well as the ability to remain calm under pressure. You will also need to be able to follow precise safety procedures in order to protect both the patient and yourself. Training is split between hands-on practice on patients in a clinical setting and classroom study. Most certification programs can be completed in one to two semesters, and many schools now offer online or hybrid options for students who need a more flexible schedule.
There are many places where certified phlebotomy technicians can work. Hospitals, clinics, blood banks, and research laboratories are just a few of the places where phlebotomists can find employment. Some phlebotomists even work in mobile units that travel to different locations. Others work in special settings, such as prisons or forensic laboratories.
There are two main settings for phlebotomists in healthcare work, inpatient clinics, and outpatient clinics. Inpatient clinics are where patients stay in the hospital for a period of time to receive treatment. Outpatient clinics are where patients go to receive treatment but do not stay in the hospital.
The job outlook for phlebotomists is positive, with an expected growth rate of 10% from 2021 to 2031. This growth is due to the increasing demand for medical services due to the pandemic and an aging population. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that there are approximately 660 phlebotomists in New Hampshire.
Only four states require certification for phlebotomy technicians to practice, and New Hampshire is not one of them. But becoming certified is standard if you want an entry-level position. Additionally, it shows that you have the skills necessary to be successful at your job. It also makes you more viable to potential employers.
|Where Phlebotomists Work||% of Jobs|
|Other ambulatory healthcare services||14%|
|Outpatient care centers||1%|
Phlebotomist technicians can work in a variety of fields, and there are many job opportunities for phlebotomists. With a certification, you could explore different specialties in the medical field as a phlebotomist technician. You could also find work in science, where you analyze samples for research purposes. Phlebotomy technicians can also find work in sales, teaching, and becoming business owners. With the right training and experience, you can advance work as a:
- Phlebotomy Supervisor
- Phlebotomy Educator
- Clinical Laboratory Scientist
- Medical Laboratory Technician
- Registered Nurse
- Medical Sales Product Specialist
According to the May 2022 Bureau of Labor Statistics job report, phlebotomists in New Hampshire make $19.95 an hour on average. The average annual wage is $41,490. The top ten percent of earners make $23.41 per hour or $48,690 annually.
