hmmm.. I think so...??? We only have RNs on our floor, but we used to have an LPN and I can't remember her not being able to start an IV, we do IVs every day...

Your best source would be your state board of nursing. At the gray toolbar at the top of the page, click on 'Links' then 'Boards of Nursing.'

I was a LPN before I became a RN. I work at several hospital and was expected to start IV, but couldn't push medication or hang certain solutions like heparin and KCL.We could only hand antibotics and saline soultions.
