Introduction <br />You are probably thinking what the heck is phlebotomy also known as phlebotomist. Well a phlebotomist is a nurse that draws blood. The reason why I chose this career is because I wanted to be a nurse but I didn’t want to be a nurse that is in the room when the doctor is doing surgery. So I said hey how about I be a nurse that just draws blood. So I did a little research. Hopefully this research will help you succeed or be successful in choosing what career you want to be in. <br />
