Hi everyone....this is my 2nd year as an LPN, my first year at a low acuity LTC facility...i'm now at a home health agency, my impression was that we can start IV's...i remember that on of my instructors say that in michigan, only RN's can start IV's, LPN can "hang" them but not "start"....any thoughts....

As far as I know, only RNs can do ANYTHING with IVs in Michigan.
