I'm in a LPN class in North Carolina and I was wondering where and how I get IV Certified? I believe ( I don't know for sure so I apologize) that you have to have one to work med/surge in this area, and I soooo do not want to do the nursing home route. Any information would be much appreciated.

It would be a sound idea to check out your local adult-education schools and/or community colleges. In my area, these types of schools offer reasonably-priced IV certification classes to graduates of LVN and RN programs.
Also, my LVN school offers in-house IV training to people who have graduated from the program. The cost is $250.
