    Call the pharmacy you use and see if they have an IV department. Perhaps they could send someone. Or, call one of the big, chain, pharmacies....Pharmerica, Kindred Pharmacy...they have people who teach IVs.

    You might want to try your local university.....some do a 5-6 week course for LPN's to become IV Certified.

    Are you talking about LVN's? There are plenty of sites online with IV information. I created my own course and got instructors from clinical ladder nurses needing education hours, infusion nurse, and rep from the company that supplies us with cathlons. Mfg. has plenty of resources and like you to notify them of needs.

    Your pharmacy should be able to help. I'm sure they have IV nurses that would love to teach a class.
