Carrington College is committed to providing an education that supports the growing need for phlebotomists in Nevada with the launch of its Phlebotomy Technician program in Reno. Employment of phlebotomists is projected to increase 25 percent by 2024, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

“Health care careers are projected to grow significantly over the next ten years. The need for phlebotomists in health care is on the rise,” said Barbara Halle, Carrington College Senior Dean of Nursing.

Carrington College’s program is designed to be completed in as few as three months. Students will have the opportunity to complete their classroom studies in a flexible and engaging online environment, and practice blood draws on campus prior to spending 100 hours in the clinical portion of the program. Carrington College’s Reno campus is currently accepting applicants for its first Phlebotomy Technician Certificate of Completion program.

The Reno campus will partner with local hospitals and labs for these clinical experiences to immerse students in real-world medical environments, honing their skills while strengthening critical thinking and communication abilities. Once they finish the program, graduates will be eligible to sit for the national certification exam required to become a certified phlebotomist.

“I am thrilled to offer this new program at Carrington College, where students can complete an interesting and functional certificate that will help prepare graduates for an exciting health care career,” said Ravinder Dayal, Carrington College Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs.
