Staff competency with IV Therapy

  1. At my institution we are looking for innovative, reliabe ways to ensure staff competency at IV therapy. We want them to actually be able to start IVs. That is now a real challenge for us - many new nurses who do not receive IV training in school, and with sooo much to learn during orientation, IV therapy often takes a back seat. Any suggestions or information would be most appreciated. Please feel free to contact me at lefevel@slhn.org. Thanks in advance for your help.
