CA LVNs.Where did u get ur IV cert?
- 0May 29, '11 by ElleveeinI'm newly licensed and looking for an IV cert course in or around LA that has classes on the weekends. Any suggestions?

- 0Jun 2, '11 by SquishyRNI went to Genesis MEC in Brea. It's typically run during the weekend, and it's a 3 day course from Friday to Sunday. I thought the instructors were great and the office sent my info to the board pretty quickly. I had a class C designation (certified in intravenous therapy and blood withdrawal) on the board's website in no time.
- 0Jul 6, '11 by deemoneeDoes anyone have a clue to how long it would take IV certification to post in CA?
I took the class in May of 2011 and its been 2 1/2 months since. I contacted a person within the BVNPT and he could not give me an answer.
The thing is, I need this as soon as possible because this is all I need to apply for my RN program and while theres available space, I want to send in my application asap.
- 0Jul 12, '11 by SquishyRNI took my class the weekend of Halloween 2010 and it was on the website by mid-February 2011. So 3 1/2 months, but I wasn't even licensed until December. They didn't send my paperwork to the BVNPT until I showed them my actual license, so really it took about a month and a half from when they sent the info until it showed up online.

Its $300 for 4 eight hour days...we did Tues-Fri. The instructor is very entertaining and makes some of the more boring material easier to get through.
I did mine at the end of June. I havent even checked to see if mine is showing up on the site yet.
