I got this from someone in california, its a national certification but I'm trying to also find out what the scope of practice here in Louisiana for an LPN IV infusion nurse.
let me know if you hear anything, also.
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: http://www.lsbpne.com/practice_opinions.htm
Here is a link to certifications the Louisiana BON accepts for continuing education: http://www.lsbn.state.la.us/documents/CertAgency.pdf
Hope this helps. And, we hope you are enjoying allnurses.com
