Can a LPN push IV meds if they are IV certified and a RN is present at the site. On page 69 of the Nurses Practice act it sounds like they are allowed, but I have been told differently.
If anyone knows please respond.

Hi, Im only a student, but I brought this up to my instructor and was told yes, but you have to check your facilities policy & procedure manual...you could be restricted by the facility policy and it still be okay under the nurse practice act.

Yes, LPNs can push IV meds if they are IV certified.
