Intravenous Antibiotics: Where We Are and Where We're Going - Antivirals
Our continuing nursing education courses are accredited by the California Board of Registered Nurses, the Georgia Board of Nursing, and the Florida Board of Nursing. All states (with the exception of Hawaii) recognize our courses for accredited continuing education contact hours.

This instructional course has been designed for nurses administering and/or caring for the patient receiving intravenous antiviral agents. Antiviral antibiotics have only been available for less than 70 years but antiviral resistance has already 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 available intravenous antiviral medications.

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. A link to each state board of nursing is listed here. Competency requirements are obtained and maintained through the nurse’s employer, facility or institution. This course provides 1.50 contact hours of continuing education.
