Education and training will include a review of the circulatory system, insertion procedure, techniques for proper and successful catheter insertions, care, assessment and maintenance post catheter insertion, isotonic, hypertonic and hypotonic crystaloid solutions.
You will receive hands-on training in an I.V. lab and will be performing vein puncture and intravenous canulation on life like manikins.
