I'm currently studying Bachelor of Nursing and completed my Diploma of Nursing in december 2012. I had a debate today with a friend who is an EN graduate who stipulated that EN's scope of practice extends now to PICC & CVC however I was under the impression that this was not within the scope of practice at least when I was at TAFE studying anyone in the field would appreciate your feedback
