TIFFANI’s Answer

I think the phlebotomy/Lab Assistant field will continue to grow, there is an overwhelming need for routine and stat blood work as a preventative care, monitoring and managing health conditions will always be extremely important. Also as patients take more control over they’re health an wellness the need for lab tests will be even greater.

I do not see the field of phlebotomy declining. So many illnesses and treatments depend on the laboratory values found in patient blood samples. Phlebotomy is a great introduction into patient care and the medical field. It's a solid valuable skill to have and perfect. Good luck!

The profession of phlebotomists is expected to grow by 10% over the next 10 years according to the BLS. That's much higher than all occupations, but slightly lower than all other healthcare occupations, which is expected to grow at a rate of 12%.
