Hi, I am a new grad and I signed up to take PICC class at my local college. It is to cover Inserting and caring for the device. I emailed the teacher asking if this would be a good class to take but didnt get a response, so I signed up and paid. The class is tomorrow Am. I got an email later (too late to cancel) and her response was that the course would be no good without IV skills. (she also teaches an IV course). So I am now wondering if I wasted my money? Should I still attend the course? It cost $285... I wanted to take the course because I am interested in Hospice nursing (have hospice experience) and Hospice deals with PICC lines often.
So now..should I attend? I cannot get a refund...but will I be horribly confused? They did teach us IV's in school, and yes we did start IV's on patients in clinicals..
