About Infusion Therapy by RNs

IV infusion therapy training for RNs starts with peripheral IV therapy. During the first 2 days you will learn legal implications, elements of delegation of IV therapy to LPNs and unlicensed assistive personnel, types fluids, irritant and vesicants, insertion use and maintenance of peripheral iv catheters, nursing measures to prevent peripheral IV therapy related complications.

However, RNs are responsible for use, care and maintenance of midline catheters and central vascular access devices (CVADs) such as peripherally inserted central catheter (PICC line), Hickman catheter, triple lumen and port-a-cath. Also, RNs are accountable for IV therapy tasks delegated to LPNs and other subordinates.  Therefore, IV infusion therapy training for RNs include use, care and management of all central vascular access devices.  Upon completion of this 20-hour infusion therapy training, RNs become knowledgeable of peripheral and central vascular infusion therapy procedures.

Selected State Boards of Nursing allow LPNs with education and training to infuse through certain CVADs. LPNs with scope of practice allowing to use CVADs also may attend 20- hour training. It is each nurse’s responsibility to be aware of the scope of practice and practice within legal limits.

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
