    I live in Baton Rouge, LA and have been trying to get the information about the PICC training as well and I kept getting the education person's voicemail. I left about 15 messages and never received a call back. The picc nurse at the hospital I work at gave me the area rep's name and number. I called him and he was suppose to send me via e-mail the information and the code for the class and as of today 01-17-2010, I have not received it yet. I tried calling back and now all I get is his voice mail and the person's at Bard's voicemail as well. Can anyone tell what to do to get the information so iI can take the course, the PICC nurse at the hospital is willing to preceptor me after taking the course. Some one please HELP! cdeonwillRN

    Thanks so much for the quick response ! I don't think I would be able to make that class on the 20th of January, but when is the next one being offered? I can better prepare having a advance notice of the next date so I can take off from work.
    Thanks, Carlos
    P.S My birthday is 12/03/1973! Ironic

    Hello. Am hoping some of orig. posters see this. I too am in the same boat as the girl from Ohio, as NO PICC classes. I have spoken to BARD and they are willing and able but our facility/company does not order their products directly from them...they pay more am sure thru 3rd party...
    Am studying for the CRNI to increase market value of self to break into this area. If I take the "online" test at BARD, will this help? Am willing to do anything as am very interested in this field. I really want to place PICC's and Midlines. Any help advice welcome!!
