    We were told that we aren't allowed to puh IV meds or adm blood or blood products with our LPN license also that includes even if we have our IV certification.
    This varies from state to state. Some state boards of nursing allow nurses with IV training to push IV drugs and some do not. I am not aware of any states that allow LPNs to use central lines or administer blood but that would depend on the individual state's nurse practice act. It is very hard to make generalizations about the role of LPNs/LVNs because they do vary from state to state. If you have questions about what you are and are not allowed to do you should consult your state board of nursing.

    I was talking about in Florida. I should have put that in the post.

    In FL LPNs can push IV meds, since this is the FL forum, it's reasonable to presume all questions are pertaining to FL.

    I think that you also have to be experienced to be an LPN II, it's not something a new grad can walk into. You have to pass NCLEX and finish your 12-week orientation before being promoted, at least that's how it is where I work. However, experienced LPNs with IV certification are immediately hired in as LPN IIs.
