    Should I take a summer job as a phlebotomist?

    An urgent care in my hometown is in search of someone short term (2 month period) for a phlebotomy position. My home state doesn't require certification for phlebotomy, and the job description says no experience required and they provide training. I want clinical experience and I feel as if this...

    CNA or Phlebotomy?

    CNA class is 6 weeks and ~ $500. Phlebotomy is 10 weeks and ~ $650. The cost is so similar and the time isn’t an issue, as I have about 6 months before going back to college full time for my prerequisites. Both have about the same opportunity for employment, but I’d like to do part time to...

    Clinical experience out of state??

    I'm sorry if there is already a discussion about this, I definitely can't find it if there is. Anyway, I go to school in Florida but live in New York. I really want to get clinical experience but it's really hard to get anything when I'm only in one state for three months at a time. I can't...

    Phlebotomy and ACLS Course.

    I have been scouring the web for a reliable source that provides Phlebotomy and/or ACLS certification with no luck. Does anybody know of a good way to find this? If it matters I am located in Central Virginia. I was also wondering if you need BCLS cert to even attempt ACLS course or can you...

    ER Tech advice and going to school.

    Is it feasible to become an ER Tech and work as one while I continue to take a regular class schedule? What kind of free time and scheduling am I looking at? I plan on applying to Medical School in about 3 years and know I won't have time to work much then. So I figured working as an ER Tech in...
