    COURSE DESCRIPTION:

    Training - Blood Withdrawal Training Program. Depending on your training
    needs, you can choose one of three training options: Intravenous Therapy
    Training Program (Only), Blood Withdrawal Training Program (Only), or
    Intravenous Therapy and Blood Withdrawal Training Program (Combination).
    Each of these training options are discussed in further detail below:

    TRAINING OPTION I: INTRAVENOUS THERAPY TRAINING (Only)

    The purpose of this course is to provide you with the knowledge and skills to
    safely administer fluids, electrolytes, nutrients, blood, and blood products to
    your patients in an organized health care facility. We are confident that upon
    completion of the theory and clinical phase of training you will possess the
    knowledge and skills to provide this valuable therapy to your patients.

    This training program is provided to you in two distinct phases, Phase I (Theory)
    and Phase II (Clinical):

    Phase I:

    Phase I is theory based training wherein students attend live lectures provided
    by a Board approved instructor for 24 hours. The following  training is provided:

    1)        Lectures in furtherance of meeting course objectives. Students are
    expected to take part in the learning process through interactions with their
    peers and instructor;
    2)        Video and Power-Point presentations are used to reinforced information
    presented in the student’s training manual and provided in class during the
    lecture;
    3)        Visual curing provides the student with their first exposure to Intravenous
    Therapy by observing the instructor perform step by step demonstrations of the
    procedures on a mannequin;
    4)        Students are also provided training in I.V. calculations and will be
    required to demonstrate the ability to determine the correct flow rate using an
    infusion pump and drops per minute when a gravity flow delivery set-up is used.
    5)        Familiarization training is provided in the use of various types of
    venipuncture devices and delivery systems used in intravenous therapy;
    6)        Student participates in simulated patient scenarios in which they will
    encounter a patient that may be cooperative, uncooperative, or even
    unconscious. Additionally, techniques to employ when administering intravenous
    therapy to children and infants is provided;
    7)        Student’s knowledge and performance is assessed based on classroom
    participation and a final examination.

    Phase II:

    Phase II is the clinical phase of training students. Students must successfully
    complete Phase I to enter Phase II. The clinical phase of training is completed in
    6 hours.

    1)        Student demonstrates the ability to take a telephone order;
    2)        Student verifies the physician’s order;
    3)        Student introduces self and informs the patient of the physician’s order
    4)        Student answers any questions patient may have;
    5)        Student selects the appropriate intravenous fluid to be infused;
    6)        Student selects the paper equipment to be used (via I.V. pump or
    gravity    flow);
    7)        Student demonstrates ability to calculate proper rate of infusion via I.V.
    pump or gravity flow;
    8)        Student demonstrates ability to regulate intravenous infusion by gravity
    flow;

    14)        Student successfully performs intravenous therapy;
    15)        Student successfully discontinues intravenous therapy.

    Overriding Principle:

    Administering intravenous fluid is both an art and a science. Through this
    course you will learn the science of administering IV fluids and to a significant
    degree, the art as well. Yet, the art of administering IV fluids will improve with
    practice and it is important to keep your skills current by taking part in
    administering IV fluids even though you may not be the particular nurse
    assigned the duty. Therefore, when you have an opportunity to “help out”
    another nurse, be sure you do!  

    TRAINING OPTION II: BLOOD WITHDRAWAL TRAINING (Only)

    Phase I:
    Phase I is theory based training wherein students attend live lectures provided
    by a Board approved instructor for 3 hours.

    successfully perform venipuncture. Students are required to safely perform
