We don't have to take it to get into nursing classes, but..... I was thinking I should, we only have fall/winter courses and as always I am too late to start (story of my life, I am always late for something, if it isn't Church it's my monthly
), anyways I was thinking of taking this in the Fall while I take my other pre-reqs and possibly get into a hospital to work as a Phlebotomist and gain some experience PLUS I can hopefully get some financial help with nursing school. Anyone done this and what was your outcome, good/bad?? Is it worth it? I just can't believe I don't have to take this in order to be a nurse, I know your trained regardless and you can be the best at it without taking Phlebotomy, but I have been stuck way to many times by certain nurses and now I just wonder if they were trained as well in it (example: they skipped class that day :chuckle ), IV's hurt and it can hurt to have your blood drawn , if I can put a child at ease about a needle I would love to do that, any thoughts? Thanks in advance for your replys.
