I am a newly licensed LVN. I heard certifcations for IV for LVN/LPNs. Do you need certifications for inserting/removing catheters for LVN/LPN ?
In our hospital nurses do not insert caths in males unless they have in house certification. Female inserts of cath is standard nursing care though.
Are you in the UK?
Males are the easiest to insert unless you have a huge prostate to deal with. Then a coude tip is your friend.
I believe that's the case in Australia, for one. (MDs cathing males)
