PICC Clinical - 3 Day

ID : 77194   
« back to classes page
The PICC Clinical Program provides precepted live PICC insertions in an acute care environment.  Students may choose a 2 or 3-day PICC Clinical track.  PICC Clinicals will begin with observation / simulation and continue with hands-on PICC insertions.  Depending on the student’s progression and comfort level with the procedure, there will be the possibility of up to 4 (or more) one-on-one, instructor supervised, Ultrasound PICC insertions utilizing the Modified Seldinger Technique (MST) and ECG tip confirmation technology. 
The student will receive a completed Clinical Procedure Checklist with a written assessment of proficiency for each insertion performed.  CE and/or PICC Qualification certificates will only be issued to those individuals who successfully demonstrate a comprehensive knowledge and ability to comply with the proper procedural steps required to place an MST/Ultrasound PICC, as outlined in the course objectives.
Course Objectives:
  1. Verbalize and demonstrate the procedural steps listed on the Clinical Procedure Checklist for the insertion of Peripherally Inserted Central Catheters via MST-Ultrasound placement
  1. Discuss and adjust procedural steps to implement the instruction, suggestions and recommendations provided by the preceptor to acquire PICC insertion skills
  1. Demonstrate the ability to document the essential elements in the Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter via MST-Ultrasound placement insertion process
  1. Demonstrate progress towards independently performing the procedure for Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter insertion via MST-Ultrasound placement, requiring incrementally less support and/or prompting related to the procedural steps throughout the PICC Clinical experience
