New member seeking Picc Line cert. and business

  1. Hi,
    I am an RN-BSN working in CCU for a major NE Ohio hospital. I'm going to get my Picc Line certification and start a business. I know where to get Picc line training but not sure yet how to SPECIFICALLY get certified. Any help here would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to this forum and interacting with my fellow nurses. Also does anyone know a particular thread that addresses business issues and Picc line certification. Thank you.

    Welcome! Check the IV therapy forum...several nurses were investigating this type of business in the past. BARD sponsors a certification process as well as hints/resources towards contracting and establishing your own business. Several members here specifically recommended IV certification as well as PICC. Good luck and hope you enjoy it here...lots of good folks to interact with.

    Thanks very much, Mattsmom.
    What is BARD? How do I contact them?
    I will look at the IV Therapy thread
