Hi I am a critical care nurse in Wisconsin and I am interested in learning to place PICC lines. I am very willin gto take a course to become certified to place PICCs however, I do not know how to find someone who would be willing to precept me. The hospital where I work doesn't do this. ANy ideas on how I could learn? I am willing to do this unpaid! And i am willing to do a little traveling to learn.

I think the best way to learn is to take a course. Bard has a really
good online course that cost 50 dollars. Then you have to work with
another picc RN to learn the ropes of how your hospital does them. Does
your hospital have a picc program? I personally think you have to do
alot of picc to get good at them. Let me know if I can help with any
questions you might have. See ya
