My BSN program in Portland, OR did not, and the reason cited was litigation concerns...which seems silly to me but there it is.
It is an issue, as it can be seen as one of the big tasks and cause for some stress if you have not had the time to get sticks in school or a clinical rotation. But that being said my experience is don't worry once your on the floor and get your feet under you then just make time to start IV's if you pt needs one or someone elses does go and try once. Find out the nurses who are good at starting IV's and have them walk you through it. Also if you can get into an ED or ICU if that is what floats your boat your will have many, many opportunities to stick people as we do all our own sticks usually. Also it really depends on where you're at, if you're working in surgical units your patients are going to be all lined up and you will have more access than you know what to do with and even if you have started a bunch of IV's in the past you will get rusty as you will not be using the skill as much. And in most cases unless you are in the ICU or the ED there are IV teams in many hospitals that will come and start IVs for you as you will be busy as hell with all the other patient care and medication passes stuff. This is not an excuse to learn! I would still advocate getting this skill down. However in my humble opinion its just that, a skill, and you will get it with practice and unless you are in an unit that is doing a lot of them as is the case in an ED, its not as big a deal as you might think because of reasons stated above, plenty of access, IV teams, ect. Plus if you are in a unit that starts a bunch of IV's you will be a pro in no time.
I started zero IV's in school and am now someone who people go to for hard sticks, and all I did was make time to try and start them. I am now I am pretty good--I wouldn't sweat it
