There are new state regulations that require all licensed practical nurses to complete an IV therapy eight-hour didactic course prior to October 31, 2021. 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 online 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. The online course consists of five pre-recorded videos with a total runtime of approximately eight hours. A post-test will be required before course completion is confirmed and CEUs are provided.
After completing this course, participants will:
- Discuss peripheral intravenous lines.
- Discuss central intravenous lines.
- Describe legal aspects of intravenous therapy.
- Review infection prevention and control procedures.
- Identify information contained in the nurse practice act and regulations governing intravenous therapy.
