Knowledgeable Instructors

This course was developed and managed by a Registered Nurse Educator with a Certified Registered Nurse Infusion (CRNI) certification.  IV class assisting instructors are all experienced Infusion Nurses.


If I take this class, will I become IV Certified?  Some websites list their IV Therapy course as an “IV Certification“.  Though, a true "IV Certification" is gained by RNs, only by taking a national certification exam. The nurse must first qualify to take the exam by holding a certain number of hours in infusion therapy. This "IV Certification" is the Certified Registered Nurse Infusion (CRNI) administered by the Infusion Nurses Credentialing Center (INCC) (for RN’s only).  There is also the Certified Vascular Access Nurse by the Vascular Access Board Certified (VA-BC) administered by the VACC (for RN’s, and other healthcare professionals).  Frontline's IV Therapy Program is attended by many RNs, LPNs, and practitioners wanting to learn more about IV Therapy. Some employers want a nurse to have an IV course before working with their infusion patients. This course is intended as a fundamental, comprehensive overview of IV access and IV therapy.  It also is an approved course for LPNs in the State of PA for the PA SBON IV Therapy required training.  The nurse that completes Frontline's IV Therapy program will receive a Certificate of Completion that states it is also a PA SBON approved IV Therapy course.
