What Makes IV Certification for LPNs and LVNs so Complicated

I receive phone calls every week asking if our online IV education courses will work for IV “certification”. Before I can answer that question- I need a lot of information.

I first must determine if they are an LPN or LVN, seeking the requirements of their state board to practice IV therapy in that state.  Most state boards require LVN’s and LPN’s to have post licensure education in infusion therapy principles to administer any type of intravenous therapies.

Some states are very specific and spell out exactly what is required, down to the exact curriculum to be taught and then there are states that are very vague on the requirements.

8 Tips for Efficient IV Catheterization
There are eight ways nurses can improve their success rate for IV starts in patients, including the old adage that practice makes perfect. 

Nurses should perform the task over and over again in order to become proficient.

Selecting the right IV site requires nurses to be educated on how to gauge patients' anatomies and be aware of what medications and fluids the patients will receive during surgery so they can make an informed decision about IV site selection.

Holiday Tips for Busy Nurses
Although the holidays can be a challenging time for busy nurses, even the busiest nurse can create a special feeling this holiday season with a little forethought, flexibility and creativity.

Here are four ideas that can help.

1. Create the outcome you want. Vision the end of the season. Feel your joy and peace at creating the experiences you want to have for yourself and your family. Work back from the outcome to discover the actions that you can take to create that outcome. Be flexible and selective to get the holiday feeling you want. Example: If you have to work on the holiday, pick another day when everyone is available to celebrate together.

An LPN can Give an IV Push - No an LPN Cannot Give an IV Push
The great debate, so which is it?  Can an LPN/LVN give an IV push medication or can’t they.  Well the answer is not so black and white.  As a matter of fact the answers are down right “clear as mud”.

You know it is coming…. the dreaded statement; “you will have to read your Nurse Practice Act, Scope of Practice or Administrative Code”.  That dreaded boring document that let’s face it, no one really wants to read, but we all know we should.  As a matter of fact I am going to say your knowledge of these documents within the state in which you practice is truly of utmost importance and your license can depend on it.
