Phlebotomy Training in Hawaii

So, you’d like to study phlebotomy, but you live in Hawaii and aren’t sure what your options are. What schools offer this program? How much would you get paid as a phlebotomist? These are valid questions that have clear answers.

Phlebotomy, first of all, is the process of making an incision, using a needle, in a vein. A person who does phlebotomy is called a phlebotomist, although in many countries doctors and nurses also partake in phlebotomy procedures. Phlebotomists are trained through completing a specific number of hours in a certification program.There are programs online, as well as in the classroom.

Ok, back to Hawaii and your options if you live there. Luckily, Hawaii isn’t one of the four states that require specific state certification: California, Washington, Nevada, and Louisiana. The rest of the nation accepts a national certification, which can be obtained through various organizations. In order to qualify to take the national examination, a candidate must complete a full phlebotomy program and provide documentation of laboratory of clinical experience.

Specifically, to complete the certification, a student must complete 20 hours in basic phlebotomy classes; 20 hours in advanced phlebotomy classes; 40 hours of practical training; and 50 successful venipunctures in addition to 10 skin perforations on live patients.Additionally, those wishing to obtain a phlebotomist certification need a high school diploma or GED; be at least 18; and be able to complete a background check and pass a drug test (which may vary depending on the school’s policy.)

As a potential phlebotomist, it is important to know what your salary might be. Salaries for phlebotomists, like other careers, can vary by state. A phlebotomist in Hawaii, unfortunately, gets paid lower than the national average; they are paid around $24,000 per year. It’s also important to compare the potential salary to the cost of living in that state, and Hawaii is an expensive state in which to live, perhaps one of the most expensive in the nation.

On the other hand, unemployment in Hawaii is low compared to the rest of the country, so that certainly helps. And while phlebotomists aren’t currently in demand in Hawaii, the job market for phlebotomists is on the rise nationally. So as the nation continues to see a rising need for these types of healthcare professionals, Hawaii will likely follow suit. From 2005 to 2013, the field of phlebotomy saw 60 percent growth—nothing to scoff at.

If you’d like to be a phlebotomist, and you want to get trained in Hawaii, there is plenty of opportunity to do so. And if you want to stay and practice phlebotomy in Hawaii, that’s possible, too. Just continue to stay on top of the job trends, the average annual salary for a phlebotomist in Hawaii, and the cost of living, as those are all important parts of your decision.
