- 0Jul 26, '08 by pagandeva2000I don't live in Florida, however, I suspect not. I live in New York, and even the RNs have to have specialized training in PICC lines, so some of them can't do it until they receive an inservice and competency. I hope someone can answer your question more accurately. If there is an email address of phone number, I would call them and ask for a scope of practice file to be sent to you. My BON answers me via email very promptly (within 2 days).
- 0Aug 4, '08 by nursepammiejI would be interested in this information also. I am an LPN who recently moved to Florida and I have been all over the BON website and can't find any information on scope of practice. I am an LPN specializing in hemodialysis and just want to make sure I'm staying within scope.

I had a class given by our pharmacy infusion manager to deal with piccs, iv's, portacaths......the only thing we dont do is put them in, take them out....we run infusions through them, flush them, change the dsgs, monitor the site, and can draw blood. luckily ive never had to draw blood from one....blood draws in general.....I am awful at doing. I need more practice with it but it makes my day every time I get it lol.
