Hello. I am a PCA in Ohio but I have taken the Phlebotomy training and depending on where you work depends on your pay. Our lab at the local hospital I work at pays $9.00 an hour but as a PCA I make $11.00. PCA's do alot more than a Phlebotomist though but maybe that will help. You can also check out www.salary.com and find out.
