An online continuing education course for nurses, medical health care professionals, and other interested individuals.

This instructional course has been designed to provide current conceptual and operational knowledge to the licensed nurse interested in the provision of gamma globulin therapy. The understanding and use of gamma globulin has evolved since its entry into mainstream healthcare. For both the RN and LPN/LVN involved in providing this therapy, this course contains current practices for best patient outcomes.

In early 2016, the Infusion Nurses Society (INS), recognized as the global authority in infusion therapy, released the updated Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. The INS sets the accepted standards for infusion therapy practice for all healthcare settings. This course is based on the current best practices as defined by the Infusion Nursing Society and other governing agencies such as the CDC, and FDA.
