Advancement opportunities for phlebotomy technicians

To advance their careers, some phlebotomy technicians choose to get certified in a particular area to become phlebotomy specialists or donor phlebotomy technicians. With advancement comes additional duties that expand to non-blood tests. For example, electrocardiograms (EKGs) or sodium sweat tests. With additional experience and education, others become medical lab technicians, medical assistants, or registered nurses (R.N.s).
