a lot of us are working as techs (patient care techs, nurse techs, unlicensed assistive personnel, etc.), while in school. i just accepted a position. i was told i'd be doing blood draws and ekgs and would be trained. in reading my clinical skills book, i learned that the blood draw is considered an invasive procedure and not allowed to be performed by performed by techs or cna's without a certification in most states.
my question is whether you do blood draws and did you have to attend a special class for certification at your facility? what did it entail and did you get paid for it since it is considered training?
