IV insertion is a skill that nurses need to be familiar an comfortable with, but not all have the opportunity to practice on real people, or don’t feel like they got enough practice in nursing school when beginning their contracts as a new grad nurse. Along with our Pedagogy Hand resource, we have comprised a list of different IV insertion practice mannequin arms and pads at varying price points, reflecting a variety of skin tones. While these tools cannot compare to performing sticks on a real person, they can at the very least aid you in becoming comfortable with the IV catheter, hand positioning, sterile technique, applying tourniquets, etc.
