Job Market & Salary
The job outlook for ASCP eligible phlebotomy graduates is good. Rapid changes in health care delivery systems in the larger metropolitan areas of Oklahoma have resulted in changes in responsibilities of phlebotomists from the laboratory area to general hospital areas. Some hospitals now require the phlebotomists to perform additional basic health care tasks, which may include taking vital signs, and performing clerical duties. These changes have resulted in an increase in demand for well-trained individuals.
The salary range for phlebotomists in the metropolitan area is $11.50-$17.70/hr.
