What states require a phlebotomy license?

Technically, only four states have level requirements for training and licensure. In states where there are not any state-level licensing requirements, a phlebotomist is required to be certified to practice phlebotomy. Employers only hire phlebotomy technicians with valid phlebotomy certification or phlebotomy state license. There are, however, many medical professionals that have had years of phlebotomy experience that have never passed a phlebotomy certification exam or finished a phlebotomy accredited school. For phlebotomists who have work experience or learned venipunctures on the job but lack documentation, visit our phlebotomy certification renewal page. NPCE does not offer certification in the following states: Louisiana, California, State of Washington and Nevada.
