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.

Class Schedule

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.

I just finished the IV Certificate Program. I have to say that this was one of the best classes I have taken. I have learned so much and the class was actually interesting and fun. Your style of teaching is wonderful and I love hearing your experience. This lecture was not boring and was very informative. The hands-on training session was also helpful. I did not know the name of the nurse helping us, she did a wonderful job ans is also excellent instructor. I feel confident in my ability to start an IV after this program. I will definitely take more classes Melanie

From The start to finish Infusion Therapy Institute has been great: Melanie Clibon’s about private Midline insertion program. Excellent Program. I learned a lot today. Loved the hands-on part. I am a visual learner. Hands-on is the best: Sherry
