FAQ’s about our Acclaimed IV Course
QIs the program live or online?
Our program is a combination of live content and homestudy materials. There is no portion of the program online.
QWhat is the homestudy like?
There is an extensive homestudy that is broken down into sections that are to be complete before the live portion of the course. The homestudy is worth 24 out of the 40 total hours.
QWhen do I come to class/When is it offered?
The live portion of the program always occurs on a Saturday and Sunday. It is usually offered twice a year, once in the spring, once in the fall.
QWhat will the live part of the program cover?
The Saturday portion is a full eight hours dedicated to: general aseptic technique principles, IV laws and regulations, pumps, vascular access devices, chemotherapy, TPN and more. Each section will be in a lecture or interactive discussion format. Homestudy will be reviewed and turned in. The entire class will remain together. Sunday, the class is broken down into smaller groups that are at a similar level of experience. The entire day is dedicated to ‘hands-on’ in a live IV room setting (not a lab). Participants will learn proper: room and hood preparation; handwashing, gowning, garbing; small and large volume parenteral preparation, manipulations with ampules and filter needles, chemotherapy and TPN preparation.
QIs there a certification exam?
There is an exam that must be passed at the end of the day Sunday in order to receive credit for the course. Don’t worry, even if you have no experience. The exam is designed to cover minimum competency – as long as you pay attention during the weekend and completed the homestudy you will do fine!
