    Hello, in_it4life and Welcome to allnurses.com

    The Infusion Nurse Society link, I think, is only for IV certification for the RN. Check out this thread about certifications for the LPN:

    LPN/LVN Additional Certifications


    Here is a link to the LPN SOP from the Louisiana State Board of Practical Nurse Examiners. From this site regarding IV therapy:

    Initiate and maintain IV therapy and administer IV medications by IVPB and/or IVP (including hyperalimentation, blood and blood products)
    Practice "opinions" from the Board:

    Here is a link to certifications the Louisiana BON accepts for continuing education:
