Michigan Nurse Practice Act

  1. Maybe someone here can help me. I am graduating next week from an LPN program in Ohio. Most of my education, therefore, has stressed what an LPN can do under the Ohio Nurse Practice Act. I live near the Ohio/Michigan border and will be working in Michigan after pasing boards. I have looked on many search engines and on the Michigan Board of Nursing web site to try to find a copy of Michigan's Nurse Practice Act very unsuccessfully. I was referred by the BON to look under the public health codes, which I did. I still cannot find the main answer I am looking for though. What is a Michigan LPN's role in regards to IV therapy??? I know in Ohio, you hav to complete a separate course and obtain an IV card. Do you have to do this in Michigan also? Does anyone know the restrictions for Michigan LPNs in regards to IVs??

    Search the Michigan Nurses Association website. I am pretty sure they have the practice act listed on their website.
