Question:

Dear Donna,

I have been an LPN in Ohio for 12 years but do not have IV certification. I am trying to go back to school to become an RN, but the program I would like to attend requires this certification. Are there any courses near the Cleveland, Ohio, area I could take to become IV certified?

Ohio LPN

Dear Donna replies:

Dear Ohio LPN,

Basic IV certification courses, outside of hospital employment, seem to be in short supply these days. I could not locate anything in Ohio and even checked with the Infusion Nurses Society Ohio chapter. If the school you wish to attend is requiring this, they need to know that there are few, if any, courses in your area. Perhaps they have some suggestions or resources for you.

Nurse.com is offering a course in New Jersey. You might consider making the trip, if you don't find anything closer. Find out more at nursing-ce-iv-nov12-2012-nj.eventbrite.com.

Best wishes,
Donna
