I'm in Ohio and LPN's that are IV certified can initiate the IV in a peripheral site hang electrolytes, NS etc and the second set of ATB therapy after the RN hangs the first. No PICC lines, no push meds and no blood. I had no idea Indiana allowed LPNs to do all that. I heard they hire LPNs for hospitals whereas Ohio does not except the older LPNs who were grandfathered in and worked there 20+yrs! This is surprising because I know several LPNs licensed in both states and never had to complete additional training.
