Written by Sandy Thompson

 

CEUfast is proud to announce we have developed a series of courses that meet the 24 hours of the online portion of the LPN IV Series continuing education. Additionally, we are partnering with facilities to provide the required 6 hours of hands on skills practice. With the combination of written and hands-on training, students are able to fulfill the 30 hour requirement for Florida LPN IV Certification.

Julia Tortorice, CEUfast CEO and lead nurse planner stated “Contact hours for LPNs in any state are earned by completing this course. This is part of a series of 24 contact hours of courses to prepare for LPN IV Certification in Florida. Florida certification participants must schedule a 6-hour hands-on class and return demonstration to complete IV Certification. The 6 hour hands-on class is not provided by CEUfast.com”.

By working with on-site instructors, CEUfast is able to provide 24 of the 30 required intravenous therapy education hours for students completing the live demonstration portion of the requirement. Together providing a comprehensive Florida LPN IV certification program.

What is IV Therapy:

“Administration of Intravenous Therapy” is the therapeutic infusion and/or injection of substances through the venous peripheral system, consisting of activity which includes: observing, initiating, monitoring, discontinuing, maintaining, regulating, adjusting, documenting, planning, intervening and evaluating.

Florida LPN IV Certification requirements:

As stated in the Florida Administrative Code & Florida Administrative Register Rule 64B9-12.005: “The Board recognizes that through appropriate education and training, a Licensed Practical Nurse is capable of performing intravenous therapy via central lines under the direction of a registered professional nurse as defined in subsection 64B9-12.002(2), F.A.C. Appropriate education and training requires a minimum of four (4) hours of instruction. The requisite four (4) hours of instruction may be included as part of the thirty (30) hours required for intravenous therapy education specified in subsection (4), of this rule.”

CEUfast has developed 8 online courses, which total 24 hours of online continuing education, for the LPN IV Series:
