Intravenous Antibiotics: Where We Are and Where We’re Going – Glycopeptides
For a complete list of accreditations for this course, please see the accreditation information box below the author’s bio.  All states (with the exception of Hawaii) recognize our courses for accredited continuing nursing education, CNE, contact hours.

This instructional course has been designed for nurses administering and/or caring for the patient receiving intravenous antibiotics. I.V. antibiotics have been administered for nearly a century but bacterial resistance has forced an ever-increasing arsenal of drugs. In this often- changing landscape, the nurse needs a working knowledge of the antimicrobial agents available, and competency to infuse these medications in all the various administration systems in use today. This course examines the medication family known as glycopeptide antibiotics, and the various classes of drugs within this family.

State Boards of Nursing have varying positions on the role of the LPN/LVN in the administration of infusion therapy, including the administration of antimicrobial agents.Competency requirements are obtained and maintained through the nurse’s employer, facility or institution. This course provides 2.00 contact hours of continuing education.
