Finding a Phlebotomy School Near You

If you’re considering a start in the medical industry then there are a surprising number of career options to pick from. One of those choices is phlebotomy which is a short course completed in less than a year, and you can learn how to conduct basic health-related tasks such as drawing blood from a patient and screening healthy patients. During the phlebotomy program you might be working at a doctor’s office, but there can also be the option of working with blood donation clinics.

Wages for a phlebotomist in Texas typically start at $12 per hour*. While it may seem low for a medical profession, do keep in mind that it’s a profession that it’s possible to become a part of with only 12 months of training. You won’t need to study at a phlebotomy school for very long and it’s the perfect introduction into the medical field. This can make phlebotomy an appealing choice for people of all medical knowledge levels.

But where exactly can you find a phlebotomy school near you? Here are a couple of tips that we’ve compiled that will help you locate a phlebotomy school in Texas.

Finding a Phlebotomy School

The typical way to find a school or a place to study would be to go online and search on Google. You can easily search a term such as “phlebotomy school near me” and Google will automatically read your location and pull up any local phlebotomy schools. For instance, if you’re in Texas then you’ll likely find phlebotomy schools such as Southern Careers Institute which offers a short course that can introduce someone to phlebotomy and also provide them with full certification to work the job in under a year. However, if your location is far from a nearby phlebotomy school then it can be difficult to obtain certification without moving locations temporarily. Since it can take up to a year to complete your course, this can put you in a difficult predicament.

Certain colleges may also offer short-term phlebotomy courses in Texas. The courses themselves may often be referred to as “Phlebotomy Technician” or “Phlebotomist” courses, so you may need to add these search terms if you’re having no luck with a local search. However, while colleges can offer phlebotomy courses, they’re often not specialized phlebotomy schools like Southern Careers Institute which focuses on helping students study and graduate with a certification that can help them find a job after they complete the course.

This is why it’s often better to pick a trade school that focuses on teaching technical and practical skills that will be relevant in the line of work that you want to become a part of. A phlebotomy school falls under the category of a trade school, so you can also expand your search terms if you’re unable to find a phlebotomy school in Texas.

Finally, you can also look at reviews of the phlebotomy schools that you find. Many students offer feedback on the courses and will typically comment on the quality of the teachers and the overall learning experience. It’s best to choose a phlebotomy school that is highly rated to ensure that you’re offered a good learning experience that can help you get started with your new career choice.

“When my youngest child graduated from high school, I told my husband that it was my time. I went back to school to change careers after spending 37 years in the business field. At SCI, the instructors are professional, and they care about what they are teaching you, as well as expect you to give 100% in return. I had problems understanding how to draw in syringes and give injections. I requested extra help from a knowledgeable instructor, and I was able to receive one-on-one training. Today, I draw injections for approximately 100 patients each week. I am very confident in what I’ve learned. SCI has given me the chance to do what I always wanted to do. Thank you for my education. I am doing wonderful.”
