completed the basic - now Advance your knowledge and skills

  1. The word "certification" is used frequently in health care; it is not always used in the right context. Nurse may choose to become certified in a specialty field (i.e. CCU, IV Therapy, Oncology, Emergency etc.) for which a national exam is required .  These are "actual" certifications that are offered through a national professional organization such as the Infusion Nurses Society (INS), The Infusion Nurses Certification Corporation (INCC), or the Vascular Access Certification Corporation (VACC).  
  2. Many levels of healthcare providers contact us and inquire about becoming "IV Certified" and there are many websites that claim to offer "IV Certification".   Although a "true" IV Certification is only achieved by sitting for a national exam; and includes the Certified Registered Nurse Infusion (CRNI) administered by the INCC (for RN;s); and the Vascular Access Board Certified (VA-BC) administered by the VACC (for RN;s, LPN's, and other health care professionals)


  • OUESTION:   Do I need to sit for a national exam if I am an RN/LPN and have been told I need to be  "IV Certified"? 
  • Most often the answer is no.  Some positions (such as an IV Team) may require an "actual" certification.
  • Check with your individual facility/institution to find out their specific requirements
  • Question:  I am NOT required to obtain an actual (national) certification; what course should I take?
  • You will need to resource a continuing education program that meets your State Board of Nursing requirements, as well as your individual institution's policy & procedures for IV therapy practice.
  • Our programs give a Certificate of Completion for Continuing Educational Contact Hours.  If your State does not have any specific requirements for sitting for a National Exam, then our IV Therapy Education Program would most likely meet your needs.
