Growth for phlebotomy careers is much faster than the average for all other types of jobs — the Bureau of Labor Statistics puts it at a rate of 17% increase through 2029. That's not surprising, as medical innovations and treatments — and the ability to find more and more information out from blood samples — has more doctors and other providers sending people to the lab. For phlebotomy pros, this is good news, and one of the areas you might not have explored is traveling phlebotomist jobs.
As a traveling phlebotomist, you can expect a wide range of perks, including a competitive salary. But what draws many people to this niche in healthcare is the flexibility it offers and the ability to explore areas of the country you might otherwise never visit. When you choose to become an allied traveler with Club Staffing, you pack your bags and our recruiters help you find an assignment that ticks all the boxes for personal and career growth.
How Much Can you Earn as a Travel Phlebotomist?
Phlebotomists make on average $12 to $20 per hour, according to PayScale.com. The median rate for the nation is $15.20 per hour, though the state you work in, how long you've worked in the field and what type of facility you're employed in can make a difference in your pay. Plus, you have to factor in benefits, bonuses, and other perks for a total understanding of your compensation.
