The classes offered at our local community college to be certified as an Xray tech deal with medical imaging, radiological technology, anatomy and pathology. No classes seem to deal with needles, caths or IVs.
My neighbor is an Xray Tech at a local hospital, and she said she obtained that degree I'm looking into, and she often times starts IV.
I talked with a Sonographer (while my son had an EEG) who said she has the exact same Xray tech degree (since a sonography degree is not offered within several hundred miles of our city) and works at the exact same hospital as my neighbor, and has never (nor has any other sonographer) started, or used, needles, caths, or IVs.
When I'm done being a SAHM I really hope to start the process of specializing my degree, but since I'm so wary of entering into people's veins, I'm not sure sonography is right for me.
