How do you obtain a certification for infusion nursing? How is the career pathway like? I had done some research and came across INS online but is it valid? I am a Hawaii based RN also with a CA RN license.
IS INS VALID... uhhh YES!!! The have been providing the CRNI credentialing since 1985 for Registered Nurses. Once you pass their exam, you are seen as having your expertise in IV therapy.
It is a very detailed and hard exam, but if you have been working actively with all types of IV catheters, and know A&P in and out, Pharmacology, Chemotherapy, Blood administration and Pediatrics as well as Geriatric then you'll have no issues passing the exam.
