Absolutely! They are generally better than the doctors at getting IV’s and with a little training and encouragement, they tend to reallyenjoy integrating US into their skill set. This saves us a lot of time whenour nursing colleagues are up and running with this technique. Nursing IVprotocols are posted under the Running a Program section.
