Casper College Is Offering IV Intravenous Therapy Recirtification To Nurses
Casper College will host a basic intravenous therapy class for all licensed practical nurses, June 28th and 29th. All LPN’S licensed by the state of Wyoming are required by the Wyoming State Board of Nursing to re-certify every two years.
“’Basic Intravenous Therapy’ has been developed utilizing a Wyoming State Board of Nursing approved curriculum and will keep nurses up to date on the latest trends,” said Davina Drazick,” nurse educator.
The two-day class will cover topics such as anatomy and physiology; fluids and electrolytes; starting, maintaining, and discontinuing IV therapy; calculation of flow rates; complications of IV therapy; pharmacology; infection prevention; practice IV placement, priming tubing, advantage bags, calculations; and much more.The class is limited to 15 participants and proof of licensure is required to be admitted. “All participants will have completed the course after attending two days of class, passing a final exam with a score of at least 80 percent, participating in 16 hours of clinical time, and successfully starting three IVs in the clinical setting,” Drazick said.The cost to attend the two-day training is $340 per person, which also includes the textbook, “IV Therapy Made Incredibly Easy.” “Thanks to the our recently received H-1B Wyoming Health Care Solutions Grant, we are also able to offer grant funding for this class to the long-term unemployed, veterans, and underemployed,” said Jenn Pepple, workforce training specialist at Casper College.To register or for more information contact Pepple, workforce training specialist, at Casper College at 307-268-3060, 1-800-442-2963, ext. 3060, firstname.lastname@example.org, or caspercollege.edu/c
