I too live in the Cleveland area and was wondering the same thing. I can't believe they don't train LPN's to do IV therapy in school now!! :angryfire
I'm not an LPN yet, but will be taking boards around Sept.
A lot of hospitals will assist with getting IV certified, or so I hear.
There is a place called MedTexx they do IV certifications for Nurses LPN and RN and with this one you even get the cert for the picc, and central lines. It is done in one weekend but 30 hours of at home. so it comes to 46 hours it is approx $500 but well worth it
If it helps contact a large pharm company down here in SUNNY FL it would be OMNI Care or Pharmerica. I don't know what ya'll up north do for IV cert but it used to be (days of the glass lantern and coal buckets) that the cert was learned OJT. Now you have to be recert to be cert GO FIGURE>>>>>>:flowersfo
