Caregiving as a Spiritual Gift

Each of us, at some point, will become a caregiver to a loved one, parent or friend. Many of us can point to this kind of experience as the catalyst to our careers. The benefits that come from being a caregiver are many and I've learned that my work caring for my clients is not separate from my spiritual practice — it is one.

All I.V. connectors available have four design elements in common—external housing, a septum, a fluid pathway, and a mechanism that permits entry into the fluid pathway on connection and allows it to close to its original position with disconnection.

The concept of online IV education and IV certification is new to many, with the first response usually being “How can you learn to start an IV online?”  In reality there is much to learn before the actual insertion of a catheter.

The Infusion Nurses Society publishes the “Infusion Nursing Standards of Practice” document that has been legally recognized as the standard for infusion practice. So, should a nurse ever face a malpractice suit regarding infusion therapy? It is stated in the INS guidelines the standard of care that is to be provided. These guidelines will be cited as the benchmark for establishing if the standards of care and referenced as to if the standard of care was met or violated.

If you administer infusion therapy of any type, it is your responsibility to know and follow the infusion standards.  It is also imperative that the facility or institutional policy and procedures are updated to follow the current standards.

  The Pedagogy Philosophy

Pedagogy is the art and science of teaching, instruction, and training. It is the goal of Pedagogy to offer the most current course content, with the highest possible quality, using a variety of education methods and strategies. Attainment of licensure and formal education is not the end of education. Professionals, both practitioners and educators, are responsible for continually developing their knowledge and skills. Through continuing education and self-directed professional growth, health care providers are better prepared to deliver quality care to their patients.
