what kind of injections can an LVN administer? I've heard many different things, thanks. I've heard LVN cannot at all, but then I've heard they can. What about IV's?
any info would help

nurse2b_amy. . .it's very easy to find this information. this is a link to the california lvn rules and regulations which is the official source of what you can and cannot do:
if you will check section 2860.5 permissible practices (page 4- hypodermic injections) you will find the answers to your questions about injections and ivs.
to perform iv therapy or blood withdrawal lvns must be certified in california by the bvnpt. you can get information about that here on the california board of vocational nursing and psychiatric technicians website:
