This 44-contact-hour course provides nurses with the skills necessary to administer IV Therapy using the Missouri State Board of Nursing approved curriculum. The Online IV Therapy course is an excellent review for an RN or LPN wishing to update their skills, or an LPN who desires Missouri IV Certification.
The majority of the course is completed online through Canvas (St. Charles Community College online instructional site). There is one required on-campus lab day (date will be mutually agreed upon with the instructor once required online coursework is completed) and eight hours of off-site clinical work assigned by the instructor. Students will be required to score at least an 80% on the written final exam and demonstrate a 100% mastery of the clinical objectives on the final practicum exam in order to be certified.
Prior to the clinical work, students will be required to take and pass a urine drug screening at a designated facility. Paperwork will be provided during registration.
Registration is done in person at the Nursing & Allied Health Center (#1 Academy Place, Dardenne Prairie, MO 63368). Office hours are from 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday. Hours may vary, please call to confirm.
