This course is a component of the Texas LVN I.V. Certification Course Package. This course will be automatically added to your purchase when you purchase the package.

Texas LVN’s may purchase this course alone to ensure their understanding of the specific legal issues of LVN’s practicing infusion therapies in this state.  The participant will receive a “Certificate of Successful Completion” and awarded 1.00 accredited continuing education contact hours.

Please Note: This course alone is not an IV certification, it must be taken in conjunction with other Infusion classes. Courses recommended by Pedagogy are found in the Texas LVN I.V. Certification Course Package. 

It is imperative that all nurses understand the rules and regulations set forth by the state that governs the nurse’s practice. Each state has rules and regulations that differ from one another, therefore it is necessary for each nurse to know the specific state(s) in which he or she practices; guidelines, rules and laws. The following information guides facilities, organizations, and all licensed nurses regarding the Texas State Board of Nursing's guidelines pertaining to infusion therapy practices.  The Texas State Board of Nursing, through the nurse practice act, practice opinions mandates very specifically the requirements that must be followed to practice infusion therapy.  This course will guide you through the Texas State Board of Nursing website to all documents that impact the provision of infusion therapies by nurses.  It is always recommended that the Board’s website be checked independently as any state board can append, amend and change the rules and regulations that nurses are expected to follow.
