    I'm not sure on this one, but the place I job shadowed at yesterday had a RN working in the Recovery area with no ACLS certificate. I thought it was ironic when the hiring manager just told me in the interview that they do not do that.

    Not sure either. The big difference between LVN's and RN's is giving IV push medicine? If the recovery patient needs something IV who would give it? If a RN was immediately available to help out I see no problem.

    bad form. not saying the lpn in question is sharp enough to spot a pt fixin to crap out..but i know lpns in my state cannot push cardiac meds (epi, atro, neo..) you need to have a als trained rn to recover.
