  • Post graduates nurses before or after the NCLX examination

Please Note:

Nurse practice act (NPA) is the law that delineates the legal scope of practice of nurses. Nurse practice acts vary state by state. RNs, LPNs and LVNs must comply with the rules and regulations of the board of nursing.

Some states have specific guidelines for IV infusion therapy education and competency validation referred as IV Therapy Certification for LPNs. Most jurisdictions allow LPNs to insert and infuse through short peripheral catheters, but not through a central vascular catheter. However, some board of nursing allow LPNs to infuse through central line. Please review rules and regulations set by your board of nursing.  https://www.ncsbn.org/npa.htm
