About Infusion Therapy Institute
Infusion therapy is a specialized and evolving nursing area which requires knowledge, skills and critical thinking. Evidence and documentations imply nurses enter the workforce with little or no focused training in intravenous therapy. CDC guidelines, infusion therapy standards of practice and state regulations mandate intravenous therapy training, initial and ongoing competency validations for clinicians in all healthcare settings.
Infusion Therapy Institute (ITI) is an intravenous therapy education company established in 2003. Our focus is intravenous therapy education and hands-on training for novices and advanced learners in all healthcare settings. Infusion Therapy Institute is licensed as a continuing education sponsor, by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulations – License No. 236.000070 and approved continuing education provider by the California Board of Registered Nursing – CEP 16135.
Our Mission is to promote evidence based infusion therapy practices and positive patient care outcomes through education, training, and collaboration. Our education and hands-on training programs empower clinicians with knowledge and skills in intravenous therapy procedures.
About Our Training Programs
Intravenous therapy training programs are developed corresponding to the Federal and state regulations, intravenous therapy standards of practice and the center for disease control and prevention (CDC) guidelines for catheter related infection (CRBSI) prevention.
Certificate of Completion
Upon successful completion of each training program, certificates of completion are provided to all attendees. Certificates of completion with continuing education (CE) contact hours are provided to all nurse attendees. CE contact hours are calculated 60 minutes = 1 contact hour.
Face-to-face, interactive, small group hands-on training programs are scheduled on a regular basis at our location in Des Plaines, Illinois (about 8 miles North of Chicago O’Hare International Airport). Additional locations are added as needs and requests arise.
We collaborate with healthcare facilities and provide infusion therapy training programs throughout the USA.
