Hello. I am a CNA and I currently work at a freestanding ER in TEXAS. My boss wants me to start doing IV Inserts, since it would be a big help for our staff. They are willing to train me and get the proper certification (which I have been looking all over the web for) and I can not seem to get a direct answer on whether I am allowed to do it or not. Can I do an IV Insert (WITHOUT GIVING ANY TYPE OF MEDS) with a CNA license and proper training, or do I need to go somewhere else and take a class to do it?
CNAs are allowed to do IV inserts , but I don't think there is anything against training , but it is out of your scope of practice .
