As a newbie PICC/Vascular Nurse here in California. I am curious on how other PICC/Vascular access Nurse work in their hospital. My current job responsibility as a Vascular Access Nurse is mainly;
1. Carrying out MIDLINE/PICC line others but before that we have to screen the patient carefully if the patient is qualified or not. We have the authority to disqualify or recommend line insertions and it is being followed by the MD most of the time.
2. Assisting with USG piv insertions if our Nurses are having trouble starting one.
3. Troubleshoot VAD, limited to PICC LINEs, Central lines that is placed by the MDs, and midlines. We also assist in accessing ports.
Am I missing something as a Vascular Access Nurse?
