  • Drawing blood from patients
  • Explaining blood-drawing procedure to patients and answer questions
  • Evaluating patients’ ability to withstand procedure
  • Performing basic point of care testing such as blood glucose levels
  • Preparing blood, urine, and other specimens for testing
  • Verifying patient or donor identity
  • Maintaining and cleaning medical equipment such as needles, test tubes, and blood vials

As advancements in medical technology rise, more employers are requiring national certification in the phlebotomy field each year.
