A PICC or Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter is a mid-term to long-term vascular access Catheter placed in the veins of the upper extremity and threaded into the superior vena cava. A PICC can be inserted by a nurse at bedside with Ultrasound rather than in a surgical setting.
We are a family owned and operated company based in Waverly, NE specializing in placement of Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter (PICC Line) and intravenous access. We contract with hospitals, clinics, longterm care facilities, and Home Health agencies to provide, PICC or Midline placement, intravenous access, Aquapheresis Catheter placement, care & maintenance of vascular lines, staff and patient education. We also consult with facilities for quality improvement.
The Nebraska PICC Team currently consists of founder Susan Swierczek and a team of Independent Nurse Contractors. We actively pursue continuing education and strive to stay on the leading edge of our industry.
Susan Swierczek (Owner – RN, CRNI, VA-BC)
Susan has been a nurse for 28 years with experience in Med Surg, Telemetry, Peritoneal Dialysis Educator for 11 years, and Vascular Access RN on a PICC team. Susan has been a PICC nurse since 2003 and worked on a PICC team that serviced two large hospitals in Lincoln, NE. While in this position, ultrasound guided PICC placement was introduced and Susan was one of the first to learn this new technology in Nebraska. In 2005, Susan had a vision of sharing her expertise with other medical facilities to provide safe and experienced vascular access, as well as care and maintenance. Nebraska PICC Specialists was formed in 2006 and was the first outsourcing PICC service in Nebraska. Susan has worked as a preceptor for Bard Access Systems and is a Cathflo nurse educator for Genentech. In 2010, Susan obtained her (CRNI) Certified Registered Nurse Infusionist through the Infusion Nurses Society, as well as her board certification in vascular access (VA-BC) through the Association of Vascular Access. The VA-BC certification was offered for the first time in December of 2010 and Susan was one of four nurses in Nebraska to sit for the exam. In 2018, Susan graduated from Nebraska Wesleyan University with her Bachelor's of Science in Nursing (BSN).
In 2003, Susan Swierczek was the first at a large trauma facility to be trained in Ultrasound Assisted PICC Insertion. After working on the PICC team for several year, Susan wished that smaller medical centers had the ability to offer PICC lines to their patients. Because of geography and the cost of maintaining an access team, the technology was out of the reach of many smaller facilities.
In 2006, Susan formed Nebraska’s first outsourced vascular access provider, Nebraska PICC Specialists. We offer cutting edge vascular access services to smaller medical centers and clinics in Nebraska. For over five years we have been providing exceptional patient care and great service to our contracted facilities.
The Nebraska PICC Team currently consists of founder Susan and a team of Independent Nurse Contractors. We actively pursue continuing education and strive to stay on the leading edge of our industry.
To achieve the highest level of exceptional patient and facility satisfaction in the vascular access setting with an emphasis on patient safety, quality assurance, compassion and integrity.
The mission of NE PICC Specialists is to continue to be a leader and resource for the healthcare community related to vascular access placement. We are dedicated to providing clinical expertise and experience to our customers with an emphasis on supporting best practice guidelines. We will continue to collaborate closely with our facilities and Radiologists, while working as a team to provide the best vascular access placement and patient outcomes.
