    Need IV experience

    I am looking to switch specialties outside of the hospital with my only experience being about three years on a med-surg floor. I have gained my experience at a hospital that only allows the IV team to insert IVs and I have not started an IV since nursing school. I know that not having this skill might set me back when compared to other job candidates. Most of the job postings I see for my area say "must be proficient in starting IVs". Any suggestions on how I can work on my skills when practicing at work isn't an option? Any courses that could help? I know practice makes perfect with IV starts but at least gaining back the basics would be great. Thanks guys!
