About Us

Infusion therapy complications could be debilitating and fatal. Most professional schools provide little or no hands-on training or infusion therapy classes. Scope of practice and regulations mandate additional infusion therapy training and competency validations often referred as IV certification.

A group of infusion therapy nurses who have recognized the need for IV therapy training for nurses developed the Infusion Therapy Institute (ITI) to provide IV classes for nurses.  Responding to the requests, we have developed basic and advanced hands-on training for acute and alternate care settings. Our mission is to promote evidence-based infusion therapy practice and empower clinicians with the knowledge and skills required to perform vascular access and infusion therapy procedures safely with competence and confidence.

Whether you are a new or advanced learner, working in an acute care hospital, skilled nursing facility, home health arena or in an outpatient setting, we have programs that will fit your needs.
