Are any radiology RN's placing Picc lines in their departments and if so are you utilizing fluoro or ultrasound guidance?
In the instance that you are using fluoro, is it a technologist administering the radiation?
What type of credentialling or certification is required at your facility/state?
Tell me about your position. What hours and days do you work, who is your back-up, how are patients referred to you and by whom, how big is your hospital? We are discussing a PICC nurse to place piccs with US or flouroscopy as needed. How many do you place, say, a week. Who is your boss?
