IV certification classes?

  1. 0 Hello all,

    New member here as of June 10th. Anyways, just wondering if anyone knew of IV certification classes offered in Southern California? Did anyone attend lvn/lpn school and NOT get IV certified? I even contacted the education department where I work (Sharp) and they don't even know! Tried MedSource, they said that they stopped their classes...

    Thanks for your time!

    Hi and welcome to the BB.

    Not only did I not get IV certified in school, we didn't even learn anything about assessing the site, pumps, or anything related to IVs. I was certified while working in a hospital (1st job out of nursing school). Try the local hospitals and colleges near you, maybe they can point you in the right direction. Your local Red Cross office may even have some info to help you. Good Luck and welcome again!

    I'm in Missouri, the year I graduated my program was the first year IV Cert was required. It has really helped me, as most jobs I've wanted have asked for it. Most LPN's in the area have now gone back to take the course. If you can do it with your regular program, so much the better!

    One class I know of is offered by Grossmont school district (not Grossmont Hospital) at their Health Occupations Center. The school is in Santee, off the Hwy 52.

    Here is a link to an Adobe Acrobat file of their catalog section dealing with medical courses:

    Here is a link to the summer schedule of all classes offered by Grossmont:

    Here is a link to the web page for the official list of the California Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians board approved providers of IV Certification courses. It is an extensive list of addresses and phone numbers. You have to contact the individual providers for specific information.
