Wow, this just dawned on me. I am starting my LPN to RN bridge program soon. I am granted the first years nursing credits due to being an LPN. So, I'll start my nursing classes at the 2nd year 1st semester level.
My question is this...when did you learn to place iv's and draw blood? States vary in what an LPN can do, in my State we cannot start iv's or draw blood unless we get additional training or take additional classes after graduation. I was never taught placing an iv or blood draws. So, I'm thinking its got to be 2nd year as why would they (schools with LPN to RN programs) allow you to bypass taking the 1st year nursing classes if you will have missed skills etc that are in that first year of classes.
So..when did you learn it?
