Thanks, sharona. I understand now that it is a certificate of completion.

I'm certain it was a very interesting program. We do the same here; program that is at least 6 weeks long and after completion, issue a certificate of completion.

Thanks!!

I know thru my employer im ACLS. certified. I would like to be ortho certified seeing how 3/4 of the patients I see are orthopeadic emergencies, but the ONA (orthopeadic nurse association). Does not certify LPN's. I would talk to your nurse manager about what kind of certifications you would need to work on your unit.

I will be starting the LVN program at my CC in August 2009!!! I have a little while before I start and I was wondering can I become I.V. certified now or do I have to wait until i am an LVN? I want to be able to start IV.s.

Here in Pinellas County Florida, you wait until after you've graduated.

I know that you guys (LPN/LVN's) can now get a load of other certifications on top of your LPN license. I know that you can get your IV certifications and oxygen and what not, but what are some of the other possibilities for an LPN?

It makes me feel silly not knowing these things as a nurse with 3 years experience or more, but I guess it doesn't hurt to ask! I try to focus on the medication and patient care part ;)

Thanks for the information, I am an LPN working for Hospice but I would like to improve my skill, I will check it out .

Hello and welcome to allnurses.com, neverenoughnurse

Good to have you and hope you enjoy the site.

You don't "add" anything to your license. The certifications have nothing to do with your license. They simply imply added knowledge in a specialty area.

I hold an RAC-C from AANAC. I'll have to renew it in May 2008, at which time it becomes RAC-CT. More and more facilities are looking for MDS Coordinators who hold this certification. I highly recommend it!
