Does anyone have a scope of practice for PICC nurses they are willing to share?
There is a scope of practice for an infusion nurse on p. S6 of the the INS 2006 standards.

OK, so let's take this topic on a parallel road:
I need to know which of your states allow the PICC nurse to check for placement of the PICC on the xray and give a prelim reading so the floor nurses can use the line right away. obviously the radiologist has the official read and the line would be adjusted, if needed, according to what they say.
if anyone has supporting documentation for this, I would appreciate a copy. The MS State Board of Nursing's statement is that it is out of the scope of practice. From talking to them, they won't make it easy to even talk to them about it.
seems someone in Jackson, MS is putting together a package to present the board again, but they won't tell me who it is so I can talk with them. I'm working on getting with them, hoping my rep can help out. so if someone in Jackson, MS knows who that person is, please tell them to get hold of me.
