Directed Health Measures

Your safety and well-being are NHCA’s top priority. The event will follow Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department directed health measures (DHMs) in place at the time the event is held.

Content

There are new state regulations that require all licensed practical nurses to complete an IV therapy eight-hour didactic course prior to Aug. 24, 2022. All LPNs must complete the training to maintain an active Nebraska license, regardless of whether they will be performing IV therapy in their work setting. This course meets the didactic portion of the new requirement and counts toward the annual continuing education requirement for an LPN license. LPNs who have been previously licensed as LPN‑Cs or graduated after May 1, 2016, have already fulfilled the new requirements, and do not need to complete the didactic and skills training.

Objectives

At the completion of this program, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss peripheral intravenous lines.
  2. Discuss central intravenous lines.
  3. Describe legal aspects of intravenous therapy.
  4. Review infection prevention and control procedures.
  5. Identify information contained in the nurse practice act and regulations governing intravenous therapy.

Audience

This program is designed for LPNs who are required to complete an IV therapy eight-hour didactic course, which may include LPNs who are not LPN-Cs and who graduated before May 1, 2016.

Speaker

Jessica Broeker, BSN, RN, RAC-CT
