Hi! I'm a foreign graduate and just recently passed my NCLEX. We moved to Tampa a few months ago and now I'm looking for a job in hospitals as an RN. I don't have any certification as to IV therapy, CPR, or BLS since after I finished my BSN course and passed my local boards, I immediately entered Medical School. Now, because of moving to US, I had to stop medical school and find job as an RN. Do I NEED to get IV therapy certification before I could practice as an RN? As for CPR, BLS, AED and ACLS, I see some positions in which they are "preferred" but not necessarily required. Can you please verify this so that if IV therapy certification is not a REQUIREMENT, I wouldn't have to spend $100-$200 for classes. Thank you. Hope someone can answer this for me.
