All my video courses are 30% off and come with CEU’s!

Because they come with continuing education from an ANCC accredited provider, they’re often eligible for reimbursement from your employer, making them FREE! Talk to your manager or education department :)

If you're like most nurses, you went to a nursing school that didn't prepare you for how often you'd be starting IVs in the real world. Most schools attempt to cover this important skill over an hour or two during a single skills day, and if you're lucky you'll have the chance to trade one stick with a fellow student. This is hardly enough time to learn just the basics, and there are many schools that don't even give you a practice try at all due to insurance or legal reasons.

When you finally land a job and enter the hospital setting, they expect you to already be proficient, and the majority of facilities don't have any kind of IV training program. Nursing schools expect you to learn IV insertion and phlebotomy on the job, and hospitals expect you to have learned it in Nursing School. There's definitely an educational gap.

If you're a nursing student, new nurse, or just want more instruction around IV insertion, I’m here to help!

This video course includes everything you need to know about starting IVs and drawing blood in the pediatric population, from the very basics like aseptic technique to ultrasound PIV insertion.

We will cover standards of practice, pain reduction methods, anatomy, necessary supplies, and all kinds of tips, tricks, and techniques specifically designed to help you achieve a much higher first-stick success rate!

Each lecture is accompanied by high quality images and HD video so you can see exactly what’s happening, plus you’ll get an inside look at IV insertion using my unique, clear gelatin vein models!

Screen-in-screen ultrasound videos show what's happening both on the patient and on the ultrasound screen in real time!

IV demonstrations using high quality neonatal models.

**I did my very best to show these techniques in a way that will help you in the real world, while using some extremely high quality models for pediatric and neonatal venipuncture. Unfortunately I cannot perform unnecessary medical procedures on babies or children due mostly to moral issues (it would be immoral and in some cases illegal), so I've included both IV insertion AND phlebotomy in this course, along with 4 CEs in order to make it worth your time and money. Of course if it doesn't meet your expectations, you have up to 30 days to get a full refund.**


I started a private Facebook group for everyone who signs up for the course. This is where you can ask me questions and we can discuss everything IV-related! I try to check in at least once per day so I can personally help you with whatever problem you might be encountering. My goal is to help you become proficient with IVs, whatever that might take!

Phlebotomist since 2007, nurse since 2015, teaching venipuncture since 2009!

Since pediatrics isn't my specialty (I do have experience in the area though), I hired a Stanford Pediatric Vascular Access Nurse to help write and film the course! She did a wonderful job.
