Infusion Therapy Certificate Program for RNs

About Infusion Therapy by RNs

Certificate of Completion with 20 CE Contact Hours

IV infusion therapy consists of administration of medications and solutions through peripheral IV catheters and central vascular access devices (CVADs). RNs are responsible to administer infusion therapies through midlines and CVADs such as PICC line, Hickman catheter, triple lumen and port-a-cath. RNs are also accountable for infusion therapy tasks delegated to LPNs and other team members. So, it is imperative that RNs are competent to use and manage all types of central vascular catheter.

First 2-days of this IV infusion therapy course focuses on peripheral IV therapy and the 3rd day teaches care and maintenance of central vascular access devices.  Upon completion of 3-day comprehensive intravenous therapy training for nurses, attendees gain knowledge and skills to insert peripheral catheters, use and manage all types of central vascular catheters, promptly identify and manage infusion and device related complications. Legal implications of infusion therapy session review delegation of infusion therapy tasks to LPNs and unlicensed assistive personnel and measures to prevent legal litigations.

Who should attend

  • RNs with little or no experience in IV intravenous therapy
  • RNs who wish to specialize in infusion therapy
  • RNs longing to advance knowledge and skills in infusion therapy
  • Post graduates nurses before or after the NCLX examination
