Thank you, Lynn
Any opinion on the PICC Excellence, Inc self study training? I have inserted many adult PICCs and limited PICCs in older children. Then I could get competencied from an experienced Peds PICC nurse
PICC Excellence education is very good, however I do not know what peds information is included. The skill of inserting PICCs into children is more than what you use for adults. You need to understand and apply the differences in each age group, both psychological and physiological. Also the use of child life therapy vs other means of sedation for the procedure. So I would advise a peds course.
