Is IV Certification Required?
Although an IV Certificate is not mandatory to work as an LVN; there are a lot of employees who want their nurses to obtain it. More employers such as LTC facilities are performing Infusion Therapy for their patients and it is cost effective for their staff employees to have this certification. Do I need to be an LVN to attend this course? No. You can be an LVN Student as well.
Well we have one of the best instructors in California. The California BNVPT states that all 36 hours MUST be held in the classroom. This is an awfully long time to just sit and learn IV Therapy. However, our instructor has over 20 years in the medical field specializing in IV Therapy, Emergency Medicine, Critical Care, Post-Anesthesia, and more. He spent more than ten years in the U.S. Army as a combat medic and will teach you more than IV Therapy. Also, Central Valley Medical is an approved course by the BVNPT not only for IV Certification but for Blood Withdrawal as well. There are a lot of companies that charge over $300 for the IV Only Certification; however, Central Valley Medical charges a lot less for both certifications. We feel that sense you’re in class; why not learn and get both?
