Scope of Practice in TN

  1. 0 Hi everyone!

    I was wondering what the scope of practice is for an LPN in Tennessee without taking any additional courses after graduation. Which of these would I be allowed to do in a hospital as an LPN?

    - change dressings
    - subcut. & IM injections
    - IV therapy
    - IV meds
    - hang blood
    - d/c surgical drains
    - central lines

    Thank you so much!
