There are new state regulations that require all licensed practical nurses to complete an IV therapy eight-hour didactic course prior to Oct. 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 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.Find out more »
