What about Phlebotomy..

  1. I am now considering phlebotomy and was wondering what the pay scale is at the hospitals in your areas? I am already at the hospital but I haven't been able to find out the pay scale yet.

    Thanks!!!

    Here in the Lansing area of Michigan, the pay scale for being a phlebotomy tech is $10-$15/hour depending on if you work at a hospital or places like the Red Cross. I am sure different areas of the country pay differently.

    AnnaN5 - I'm also in Lansing. Do you know of anywhere you can get training in Phlebotomy besides at LCC? LCC is great because you can get trained with just one class, but I don't want to wait until Fall to do it. The other colleges and universities seem to require you to get an Associates. I'm really looking for just one class without having to wait until Fall.

    LCC is the only place that I know of where you just have to take the 1 class. I have heard that Sparrow Hospital will hire & train on site for phlebotomy which you may want to check into. I have thought about looking into that myself since I have been wanting to take the LCC phlebotomy class but i take 15 credits a semester at MSU so that doesn't leave much time for 'fun classes'.
    If you find out anything about the Sparrow thing, let me know!

    I checked with HR at Sparrow and you are correct. They will train phlebotomy techs on-the-job, and their website has lots of openings available. Thanks for the suggestion! I would like to find some part-time evening work somewhere (preferably some place like Sparrow) so that I can quit my day job and stay home with my kids. I would like to get into a medical establishment such as Sparrow before starting nursing school. (I have applied to LCC's nursing program for this year.)
