Im thinking about becoming a CNA or a phlebotomist what career is better ?
If I become a phlebotomist I plan to continue my education to become a lab technician but if I become a cna I plan to be a lpn in the future.

Very very different routes and careers.. do you want to do patient care OR work in a lab. That is the biggest question you have to answer yourself first.

You'd probably make a lot more money if you went the CNA/LPN route. (But it varies vastly by the area you live.) Where I'm at, Medical Assistants/Phletbotomists only average around 25k/year. However, a lot of people end up going this path because they like just having a day job and/or don't have the academic talent for nursing school.
Talk to people in the field and see whichever sounds more appealing.
