An Overview of National Phlebotomy Association (NPA)

In 1978, the National Phlebotomy Association established an industry for the healthcare community and has been the only organization concerned with all aspects of educating and certifying the nation’s phlebotomists.

The Association was founded by Diane C. Crawford for the purpose of establishing a professional standard and code of ethics for this important group of health care specialists. From the beginning, NPA has been firmly committed to excellence in developing educational curriculum, providing accreditation, offering continuing education programs, researching issues involving phlebotomy, and promoting professional and public awareness. The curriculum design for phlebotomy was developed by Alice J. Hilifiker, Ph.D., and the national phlebotomy certification examination was launched by NPA at the University of California at San Francisco in 1981.
