Know all the facts before enrolling in class

Once again, I see an ad in the local newspaper for phlebotomy education being offered for $995. Part of the class requires all graduates to do an internship which consists of 100 blood draws before receiving your certificate to work as a phlebotomist. I urge anyone thinking of taking this class to have your internship in place prior to enrolling. You are not guaranteed an internship.
