Infusion nurses are responsible for administering medication, blood and other fluids via intravenous injections. This includes finding the proper IV pouches that contain the right amount of fluids, inserting the IV, ensuring the fluids enter the patient’s body at the correct rate and changing pouches when they are low.
Other duties include maintaining arterial catheters, assisting patients with mobility and hygiene, educating patients on their medical condition and medications and attending to patients’ needs. Infusion nursing positions are found in a variety of medical facilities, including hospitals, emergency rooms, long-term care centers, clinics, ambulatory infusion centers and home health agencies.
To qualify for infusion nursing positions, candidates need to be an RN with either an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in nursing. Certification is not always necessary, but nurses can take a Certified Registered Nurse Infusion exam after 2 years of experience with 1,600 or more hours in infusion-related nursing.
