IV Certification / training - specifically West Michigan

  1. 0 Hi -

    I'm an RN with limited experience in administering IV fluids. I was wondering if anyone has any ideas as to how I could gain experience with IV's and somehow become comfortable with them? I don't work in a hospital so I have minimal resources there. I always hear about IV certification classes but my google searches lead me to no credible links.

    Any advice or information would be most helpful!

    Any nurse I know learns while on the job. Some get sent to the ED for a day or two to learn. I am an ED nurse and I didn't need previous experience. It's an art that you perfect over time. A lot of floor nurses have I.V. teams that start I.V.s for them. I don't think it would be a class that would be worth paying for, but maybe you could ask an experienced nurse to walk you threw it for free.

    Look up Washtenaw Community College LifeLong Learning. They offer a noncredit IV therapy class, but I'm not sure it its as in depth as what you're looking for.
