Maine IV Therapy IV Education Course

The Maine IV Therapy Course curriculum has been designed to fulfill the Maine Board of Nursing’s education components required for the Licensed Practical Nurse to practice infusion therapy. The Maine Board of Nursing has delineated very specific content to be included in the LPN infusion education curriculum and specifics may be viewed in the Maine BON Laws and Rules, Chapter 10: Regulations Relating to Administration of Intravenous Therapy by Licensed Nurses. This comprehensive online education program meets the Maine Board of Nursing IV Therapy requirements for LPN’s, as well as, provides an excellent refresher course for the Registered Nurse or as a primer for new RN’s. 

In early 2016, the Infusion Nurses Society (INS), recognized as the global authority in infusion therapy, released the updated Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. The INS establishes the accepted standards for infusion therapy practice for all healthcare settings, and for all healthcare clinicians providing infusion therapies and vascular access, addressing the needs of special patient populations. 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.

This 20-hour IV therapy continuing education course provides a low stress, convenient method of obtaining quality infusion education incorporating various educational techniques designed for the adult learner. The program is comprised of a 14-hour didactic portion completed on your time schedule. A passing score of 80% or greater is required to move on to the laboratory practice portion of the course. 

The participant is also required to register for the individualized 2.5 hour laboratory practice portion with New England Vascular Access (NEVA). NEVA will provide the participant with hands-on instruction and skill competency evaluations, as required by the Maine Board of Nursing.

Within the course content, the participant is provided a complete set of skill competency checklists for completion of the 5.5 hours of supervised clinical practice, including at least three (3) observed, successful venipunctures or until proficiency is determined acceptable and competency has been validated through the facility’s competency assessment program. The 5.5 supervised clinical practice and competency verifications are completed by a Maine licensed registered nurse preceptor, when guided and supported by the LPN’s facility policies.
