Has anyone here taken the RPN program at Mohawk college? Do they teach how to draw blood, and starting an IV? I've heard that they might not.

I graduated a year ago and Unless they've changed the curriculum, then no.
As a student You are allowed to use IV pumps and hang meds butyou aren't allowed to poke anyone. When you find a job, your organization will give you the intravenous training.
It's pretty simple just a few hours in class session where you learn about the veins and practice on a dummy, then you have to have a few supervised successful starts and you're good to go.
