peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC)
Our PICC Line program is presented as an 8-hour course and includes theory and simulated practice on the anatomically correct Peter PICC line manikin. This course is intended for the experienced RN who wants to stay current with the latest technology in IV therapy. The use of the peripherally inserted central catheter in managing intravenous therapy in the hospital and home setting is increasing. PICC lines establish venous access in patients in a safe, cost-effective and improved manner. All classes are taught by RNs certified in PICC line insertion. All instructors have clinical experience as well as the theoretical knowledge necessary to conduct this program. We use a variety of different PICC lines and equipment to show the pros and cons of all product devices used. A comprehensive study guide is included in the course cost and will be provided to all participants prior to the course.
