If you’re a nurse with a passionate interest in pharmacology, consider making the switch to IV nurse jobs. IV nurses administer medicine, blood and other fluids through intravenous injections. They are responsible for monitoring patients why they receive fluids, checking vitals and watching for bad reactions or negative drug complications.
IV nurses are in charge of all aspects of giving patients intravenous injections. Aside from monitoring the patient, duties include finding the proper IV pouches that contain the appropriate 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.
Are you ready to check out open IV nurse positions in your area? Make sure you have the right qualifications. IV nurses need to be RNs with either an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in nursing. Although certification is not always necessary, nurses can take a Certified Registered Nurse Infusion exam after 2 years of experience with 1,600 or more hours in infusion-related nursing.
Once you’re qualified, you can work in a variety of medical facilities, including hospitals, emergency rooms, long-term care centers, clinics, ambulatory infusion centers, home health agencies and wherever IVs are administered. Start your search for IV nurse jobs today at ADVANCE Healthcare Jobs.
