    what are requirements for RN to give B12 injections at community facility?
    For starters, the RN would need a doctor's order to administer the B12 injections.

    Is the community facility licensed to provide healthcare? Does it have an acting medical director or a physician on call?

    B12 injections use ti be given IM, now they are ordered as sub q as well. I still prefer to self administer mine as IM, but I guess that it doesn't really matter the absorption is nearly the same.
