I own a Vascular Access company, the state I practice in has no specifics regarding what LPN can and cannot do as far as Vascular Access goes. The Board of Nursing says "As long as they do not violate the nurse practice act and they are trained and competent". I have an LPN that I want to train for dressing changes, declots, PIV's, stat labs and PICC and Midlines. Has anyone used an LPN for this? I can train her, I do teach many classes. Or does anyone have any thoughts on this or concerns. Any information or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
