Trying to understand South Carolina LPN nurse practice act for IV infusion

  1. I am an LPN at a doctors office in South Carolina. I have been an LPN for eight years now, I have worked in long-term care facilities where we have given antibiotics peripherally through an infusion pump. Recently in the doctors office in which I work a position for an infusion nurse became available. I am having trouble trying to figure out if it is out of my scope of practice to infuse medications via a peripheral IV access using an infusion pump under the direct supervision of a rheumatologist.I am also interested in trying to obtain an IV certification. The nursing homes in which I worked all provided my IV certification and, and as far as I know they didn't transfer when I changed jobs. Has anyone had any experience with the online certification program offered by Pedagogy?
