  2. 2. 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 />

  10. 10. Related occupation <br />The reason why I chose this career is because I like helping and working with other people. Another reason why I chose this career is because I hate seeing other people in need. So I thought that being a nurse (phlebotomist) would be the best career for me.<br />The median base salary in the U.S. is $27,600 the total with benefits is $42,244. Base pay is therefore, on average, only 65.7% of total pay with benefits.
