IV cert for new nurses

I have just assumed a new position working with GN residents; We have hired 80 over the past 10 months and am looking for innovative ways to get them certified for IV starts; our policy is they attend a class and then must complete 3 starts with either an IV nurse (There department is small and cannot accomodate this volume) or with a supper trainer (who has a full patient load). We have looked at using the pre op area and ED. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
