I am not sure about the east coast, but in Cali u can get certified at a company and if u apply and get hired with them they will train u the hands on portion. Other hospitals like Kaiser will accept that cert and train within the hospital. It all depends on where u are applying and if they hospital is willing to train or they want previous experience.

Search for some PICC RN jobs in the area and call their departments to find out the what they are willing to offer.

Hello. I’ve been a PICC RN x 5 years. In Florida the class isn’t necessary and the only way to learn is to get the PICC nurse at a hospital to teach you. I wouldn’t waste time on the class. Additionally they might teach things, in the class, that are not the gold standard and you def do not want to pick up bad habits.
