About the session:
This forty-hour course is designed for any nurse wishing to complete a comprehensive intravenous therapy course. The course meets all the requirements of the Ohio Board of Nursing for Licensed Practical Nurses seeking authorization to perform IV therapy in the State of Ohio. The classroom instruction uses an extensive outline packet to facilitate learning and to serve as a resource for participants on completion of the course. The course is divided into eight modules with post-testing following the completion of each to evaluate learning. Case studies are used throughout the course to incorporate clinical application and critical thinking into the practice of IV therapy. Hands-on skill evaluations are made in the lab setting following instructor demonstration and practice. Several facilities are available for LPN participants to complete their three required venipunctures in a clinical setting.
The course is coordinated by an experienced Master’s prepared and Board Certified clinician and educator. The Ohio Board of Nursing requires all LPN participants to have a medication card prior to the program and the clinical component.
