I am a LVN in California moving to New York. I am looking for advice/info on getting my license there. Also, any LVN in New York with advice on certificates and such. I am IV certified in CA, but I have heard NY is different with IV laws, i.e my emt dad there can not start them. I keep reading about NPI number? Thank you!!
What area of NY? NYC? Suburbs? Upstate? Im upstate in Dutchess County! In most non rural areas of NY LPNs work exclusivically in LTC, Sub acute, Rehab and MD offices. Not a whole lot of acute care they are out there for us LPNs in NY. LPNs scope of practice is NY limits what we can do with starting IVs and pushing drugs through the IV, PICCs, Blood transfusions, Care plan initiation not sure what you certifications will allow you to do more if anything extra, you probably wont see it and have to differ to the RN on duty.
