Who Should Attend?

Northeast Medical Institute’s Phlebotomy course is designed for those seeking employment as a Phlebotomist or those looking to advance in their nurse’s aide career. We highly recommend:

  • High School Seniors/College Students (or those who just graduated High School)
    We recommend you get clinical experience before spending thousands at a college to become an RN or LPN without knowing if the medical field is for you. During a typical 4 year RN degree program you will not cover Phlebotomy due to the lack of time in the program. In just two short weeks we can cover all the vital information needed to perform blood draws.
  • Individuals seeking a Career Change
    Are you looking to change your career and want to get your foot in the door in the medical field? Our Phlebotomy program can start you out in the right direction to gain invaluable experience as a Phlebotomist. As a certified Phlebotomy Technician, you also have the opportunity to train to become a Patient Care Technician at Northeast Medical Institute.
  • Unemployed Individuals
    Are you unemployed and need to make money to pay bills that are piling up? You may qualify for WIOA or even our 6-month financing program! Contact us today to learn more.
