This two-part class is open to Sharp Rees-Stealy registered nurses and licensed vocational nurses who need IV skills as part of their current role.
Nurses will first need to complete the IV theory and technique module and test online via the Sharp Learning Center. Afterwards, they will attend the in-person portion of the class to practice and demonstrate correct IV equipment use and procedures on mannequins.
The online modules and in-person course will review the following topics:
- Alaris infusion pump
- Current infection prevention guidelines and applicable Sharp HealthCare policies and procedures
- IV calculations
- LVN scope of practice
- Potential IV complications
Please note that LVNs must possess California IV therapy certification to attend.
