Need guidance on PICC cert/jobs in CA

Posted

Hey everyone I have been wanting to get into placing picc lines since I started rn school. I have just been trying to be pt. and get rn experience 1st. My expirience: ICU rn 15 months started as new grad, and have been ICU travel for the past 18 months. All my experience has been ICU. I am currently traveling in CA and I look to get a full time position here. I just need some guidance/help on trying to obtain a picc job. I do not have any official picc training at this time, although I do feel comfortable inserting us guided periph. iv's. Should I spend money on getting picc certified? or should I try to hire on with a company full time? Any picc nurses here in CA or in general that can help, I would greatly appreciate it.. thank ya'll!

I'm not PICC certified, but I'm an infusion nurse, and most of the acute care infusion positions I've seen want people who are PICC certified. I would say that if this is your desired area of nursing, it's worth the certification.

Any picc line nurses in CA?
