LPN infusion course

  1. I have to take the iv infusion course at our community college in May and I'm wondering just how hard is this course? I have been an LPN since 1991 and just now have a job that requires I pass this course. Now I'm getting nervous. Any advice will be appreciated. Any thing that I can study to brush up for this?

    You could ask what brand of IV pumps they use in class and study them before hand. Or even better, what brand do you use at work? Do a google search and read the instructions on how to use them.

    For example, Alaris is a big manufacterer of IV pumps. You can access the instruction guide here:
