As far as I know an LPN cannot push anything IV in any state. (I don't work in TN now, but I have in the past, as well as many other states)

Yes, LPN's in TN can push any medication but first must attend a 2 day IV class.

LPN's practice acts vary widely from state to state, some restrictive like PA and NY, others permissive like TN and TX.
