Peripheral Sticks


  • Specializes in SRNA class of 2010. Has 4 years experience.

I am decent at starting peripheral IVs. However, most of my nursing experience stems from a post surgical patient population. You get spoiled because the patients tend to have lines coming out of everywhere imaginable. Then, it always seems like anesthesia, along with ER nurses, can be access from anywhere. I have an opportunity to pick up extra hours in my hospital's ED prior to my programs start date. It seems like having that magic touch comes with experience. Think it is a good idea to give it a try and get more practice? Don't bother? What are your opinions on this issue? Thanks for your input...
