PICC Line Insertion Course

Course Overview

This advanced training is presented as an 8-hour course and includes theory and simulated practice on the anatomically correct Peter PICC line manikin. Successful completion allows the participant to insert this line according to healthcare facility policy*. This course is intended for the experienced Registered Nurse who wishes to stay current with the latest advancements in IV therapy. As more patients are being discharged earlier from hospitals, ways of decreasing their stay and accomplishing their therapy in alternative settings are being utilized. The use of the peripherally inserted central catheter in managing intravenous therapy in the hospital and home setting is increasing in importance. PICC lines establish venous access in patients in a safe, cost-effective and improved manner. If you want to keep current on the latest technology, register now, as the class size is limited. All classes are taught by RNs certified in PICC line insertion, who share Nursing Unlimited’s “Stress Free” approach to training. All instructors have clinical experience as well as the theoretical knowledge necessary to effectively conduct this program. This course is not affiliated with any manufacturer. We use a variety of different PICC lines and equipment to enable us to review the pros and cons of all product devices. A comprehensive reference manual is included in the course cost and will be given out on the day of the course.

Some of the Objectives Include:

  1. List and Describe five components of the nursing care of the PICC line.
  2. List complications associated with the PICC line and appropriate interventions.
  3. Correctly insert a PICC line in an anatomically correct manikin.

*Hospital and Home Health Agency policies on insertion of PICC lines differ. In almost all cases however, a preceptorship is established in order for the nurse to demonstrate competence. Length of preceptorship is dependent upon the facilities policies regarding PICC line insertion. This certification course is the first step for the learner wishing to master this procedure.

The course fee is $245 for 6.1 Contact Hours and includes PICC Line, Dressing Kit & course workbook for each student provided on the day of class.
