There are 2-day and 3-day IV therapy training programs. Which course you should take?

Nurse practice act (NPA) is the law that delineates the legal scope of practice for nurses. Scope of practice for nurses are implemented by the State Boards of Nursing and it varies state by state.  RNs, LPNs and APNs are required to comply with the rules and regulations of the state board of nursing in their jurisdiction.

Are LPNs allowed to infuse through PICC and central lines? 

Some states have specific guidelines for IV therapy education, training and competency validation referred as “IV Certification”. Some jurisdictions such as Illinois allow LPNs with IV certification to insert and infuse through short peripheral catheters, but not through midlines, PICC lines and other central lines. However, other states allow LPNs with education, training and competency validations to infuse through central lines. Documented education is the core focus of infusion therapy.

*LPNs who works in jurisdictions that allows them to infuse through a central vascular catheter/central line are required to attend a 3-day infusion therapy course to learn use, care and management of central vascular access devices.

Please log in to the website of your state board of nursing and review your scope of practice and decide you should take the 2-day course or the 3-day course.
