    I don't know if this would be what you're looking for, but I am taking a 2day IV certification course offered by a local hospital ( I am in Philadelphia). Maybe there would be something similar in your area..I saw the ad for this class in Nursing2010, so I would suggest looking in there..Good Luck

    I agree with the previous poster. You would need to take an IV course. As far as I know, phlebotomy wouldn't cover it.

    I'm assured that the Georgia Board of Nursing would have the definite answer to your question, so you might want to place a telephone call to them or send an email.

    I'm moving your post to the Georgia Nurses forum so that you will hopefully amass more responses from other nurses who live and/or work in your state of residence. Good luck to you!
