    virginia laws and regulations

    Any Virginia LPN's out there know how to find exactly what an LPN can and cannot do?? I have scoured the Code of Virginia, the Virginia Dept of Health Professionals, etc. I cannot find specifics. All I find is "an LPN functions under the supervision of a registered nurse......" When I worked in the hospital we could not hang blood, but could monitor someone on it once the RN hung it. We could not do IV push drugs but could hang IV's and IV meds, etc, etc. Now, I work in long term care/skilled rehab and I am being asked to access portacaths, do midlines, etc. HELP....where in the world can I find the specifics???
