A basic intravenous therapy class for all licensed practical nurses will be held at Casper College on June 28 and 29, 2014.

The Wyoming State Board of Nursing requires all LPNs licensed in the state of Wyoming to re-certify every two years. The two-day class will cover topics such as anatomy and physiology; fluids and electrolytes; starting, maintaining, and discontinuing IV therapy; calculation of flow rates; complications of IV therapy; pharmacology; infection prevention; practice IV placement, priming tubing, advantage bags, calculations; and much more. The class is limited to 15 participants and proof of licensure is required to be admitted.

Drazick said,

“All participants will have completed the course after attending two days of class, passing a final exam with a score of at least 80 percent, participating in 16 hours of clinical time, and successfully starting three IVs in the clinical setting,”

The cost to attend the two-day training is $340 per person, which also includes the textbook, “IV Therapy Made Incredibly Easy.”

Jenn Pepple, workforce training specialist at Casper College said,

“Thanks to the our recently received H-1B Wyoming Health Care Solutions Grant, we are also able to offer grant funding for this class to the long-term unemployed, veterans, and underemployed,”
