Many healthcare professionals are focused on earning their phlebotomy certification to enhance their level of experience with the administration of medication or venipuncture via the antecubital fossa or dorsal venous area.
Phlebotomy, which is the process of making an incision in a vein with a needle, is an exciting field that requires much attend to detail, self-awareness, and optimal know in standard precaution procedures. Healthcare professionals such as Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Patient Care Technicians/Associates (PCTs/ PCAs), Medical Assistants, student nurses, LPNs, Physician Assistants (PAs), Pre-med students, etc. are exploring the field of phlebotomy quite early in their training as to get an edge over their competitors. They also need patient care experience which is a part of their college program.
Other professionals such as Aestheticians are earning their phlebotomy certification to perform PRP Micro-needling (street name "vampire facial") and Vitamin fix for intravenous drip therapy, LPNs are earning their phlebotomy license to improve their technique for IV Therapy, and nurses for ICU, ER, intravenous insulin infusion, venipuncture, and much more.
The overall demand to improve oneself is becoming more and more competitive. If you are a CNA with an active license and would like to advance to an RN, you can get into the hospital where all the action takes place. However, you need additional training in phlebotomy and EKG and then move on to taking the NHA Certification Exam to become a PCT. With these three certificates under your belt, you will definitely improve the odds of you being hired over the next person with only a CNA license.
As I always tell my students, do not stop at just being a CNA; continue your training to become an even more 'skilled' healthcare professional. Healthcare is a huge pool filled with opportunities and being a CNA is you tipping your big toes in it. Yes, nurses do receive this type of training; however, they do not receive an in-depth level of hands-on training. In addition to nurses, we have dentists, nurse practitioners, and doctors come in and register for this course to sharpen their skill set for their private practice and specialties.
