Oklahoma Legalities of Infusion Therapy

It is imperative that all nurses understand the rules and regulations set forth by the state that governs the nurse's practice. Each state has rules and regulations that differ from one another, therefore it is necessary for each nurse to know the specific state(s) in which he or she practices; guidelines, rules, and laws. The following information instructs facilities, organizations, and all licensed nurses regarding Oklahoma's Board of Nursing's guidelines pertaining to infusion therapy practices. The Oklahoma Board of Nursing, through the nurse practice act, mandates the requirements that must be followed to practice infusion therapy. This course will walk you through the Oklahoma State Board of Nursing website, nurse practice act, scope of practice, and delegation procedures that impact the provision of infusion therapies by nurses. It is always recommended that the Board's website be checked independently as any state board can append, amend, and change the rules and regulations that nurses are expected to follow.

In early 2021, the Infusion Nurses Society (INS), recognized as the global authority in infusion therapy, released the updated Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. The INS sets the accepted standards for infusion therapy practice for all healthcare settings. This course is based on the current best practices as defined by the Infusion Nursing Society and other governing agencies such as the CDC, and FDA.
