What is recommended for Picc line updates.
Is there a class or an online course that anyone can recommend?
I am not certain what you are asking about. PICC insertion? Care and maintenance? Complication prevention and management?
There are no requirements for obtaining XX number of contact hours on a specific time period once you have learned how to insert PICCs? But you are required to keep up with changes in that practice, changes that drive updates to the standards of care through new documents released from multiple organizations.
There are many educational opportunities related to all phases of PICC insertion and care but they are no found in a single location, a single online course or a single presentation.

Boy, I would highly recommend attending the AVA Convention! That's your update and a wonderful way to network with other PICC nurses and learn a ton of new things!
