This course has been designed to provide basic conceptual and operational knowledge to nurses, and other healthcare providers who have had previous “IV Certification” or infusion courses and would like to review the current infusion therapy standards. As the science of infusion therapy advances and technology expands, it is imperative that all healthcare clinicians and nurses practicing infusion therapy remain current in their knowledge of infusion therapies, principles, techniques, equipment and the latest in infusion evidence based practices.
