    Hi Peppa,
    Mass Casualty and Decontamination is a Federally sponsored program which was offered at the hospital I worked for. I don't recall which federal agency offered it though.

    LVN/LPN's can earn a Certified Holistic Nurse diploma in a 3 componet
    program that is accredited by the American Holistic Nurse organization. It covers Nurse Energy Healer, Nurse Master Herbalist, and Nurse Nutritional Consultant- also option to earn a certificate in any one of the three.
    This school has been around for awhile and their facility is impressive. I have been looking at this school for awhile and checked their credentials and will be enrolling soon.
    This is part of the future of nursing and any of you considering a move to California would fine this training a added benefit.

    [quote=Hospice Nurse LPN;2202514]I'm certified in hospice and palliative care. I was able to get almost 3k more because I'm certified. Not only that, it's the personal satisfaction I get for going beyond what is expected. I especially like it when one of my pts ask me when the letters behind my name mean.:roll[i'm really interested and would like to know how and where you got your certification...thank you!]

    Does any one know where you can get an IV tech cert in Southwest Ohio? I am an LPN student at a school that doesn't offer it.

    Try checking your local Community College by calling the Nursing Program. They will often have courses or certification available for a reasonable cost.

    Are lvn's able to take the ACLS, PALS, NRP certs???? What about TNCC? I want to eventually do peds, but after school I wanna get some additional certifications beyond regular nursing school. I enjoy planning ahead after school and want to know which certifications lvn's are able to obtain. If anyone took these courses how hard were they? I used to be an emt-I and took a pals pre test and got an 80% .

    Hello and welcome to allnurses.com

    Good to have you with us.

    I moved your post to this thread for continuity: LPN/LVN Additional Certifications

    To answer your question; yes, the LPN can take ACLS, PALS, NRP.

    About TNCC:
    The TNCC may officially be attended by registered nurses (RNs). Other health care providers may attend the course as observers.

    Wow - Okay I just found this thread and hoping that someone is still checking. I was looking at all the links on the first page about all the different certifications that an LPN can get. I'm interested in L&D, but don't have enough money or time to go back to get my RN and then move on from there - so I was thinking about getting certification about L&D - now does this give me an edge on getting a job in L&D either at a hospital or OB clinic even though I have no experience. If I do one or some of these certifications I'd like to choose the ones that would help me out getting a job that I love. I also saw the breastfeeding one and would like to that one in conjunction with the L&D. Just wondering how much this would affect me getting a job even though I haven't been able to get into that area to work.

    I am located in California and will graduate in July of 2008 One of the things I would like to do after I get my license is enter a wound care certification program. There was a program offered in this forum, I went there, and it mentioned that it was for RN's.

    Does anyone know of a good program in the California area? I am located in central Cal. I don't mind taking online classes. Of course, like all students, I am not rich, but am willing to pay $$$ for the right experience.

    Thanks in advance for your time.
