Hello, all I am currently in nursing school to become a pn. At the start of our classes one of my classmates asked our instructor if we would be taught how to draw blood. My instructor replied no because that is not in our job description as nurses. I thought that was weird I didn't/don't understand why we wouldn't need to know how to draw blood. Is it normal for nurses to not draw blood? Is it just that practical nurses don't draw blood, or is this a skill that I really do need to know?
