ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN!
If you're anything like me, you went to a nursing school that didn't really prepare you for how often you'd be starting IVs in the real world. I think we had maybe an hour or two during one skills day, and we each had the chance to trade one stick with a fellow student. Hardly enough time to learn just the basics, and I've heard of many schools that don't even give you a practice try at all!
And when you get into the hospital setting? They expect you to already be proficient, and I've never heard of a facility that has any kind of IV training program. It really seems like nursing schools expect you to learn these things on the job, and hospitals expect you to have learned them 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!
I’ve created a video course that includes everything you need to know about starting IVs, from the very basics like aseptic technique to placing lines in difficult patient populations such as Geriatric, Bariatric, and IV drug users.
We will cover standards of practice, 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, and you’ll get an inside look at IV insertion using my unique, clear gelatin vein models!
You’ll also get dozens of full-length IV start videos, and extras to help you on your journey to becoming an IV expert.
The IV demonstrations cover a wide variety of ages from 20’s-80’s, both male and female, differing health status, light and dark skin colors, and a large array of veins from those juicy, easily visible ones we all love to small, superficial veins in the forearms and hands.
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!
"I'm a Paramedic with some experience already and I took this course to step up my IV game. Absolutely worth it and will definitely use what I've learned in my clinical practice. The instructional videos are easy to follow and the course format is very intuitive."
