I took a combination course for IV therapy AND blood withdrawal at a place in Orange, called Genesis Medical. I would highly recommend it. I had never started an IV before taking the course so I was very nervous but they start with the basics and by the end of the class, you'll feel like a pro. The instructor was great. (Ask for Sherri)

The phone number that I have for them is (714) 971-0964

Hope this helps.

Contact North Orange County ROP located in Anaheim. The course is usually offered in the summer after their year long LVN course.

I also took a course that is a combination of IV and blood withdrawal. It was a one day course that lasted about 10 hours. Prior to that you are required to do 27 hours of self-study with the information that is sent to you by email from the instructor. I had a better experience in learning techniques in this one day course as compared to what I learned in nursing school. The class only cost me $220. If you currently work for a hospital, research to find out if they can reimburse you.
Here is the website w/ more info www.nursingtransitions.com/socal.htm

No, still no IV certification courses in Houston. It appears you don't need to be certified, just provided on job training with competency check off by your employer.

If anyone knows something different for Houston, Texas, please let us know.

Those of you looking for a class in California, go to the bvnpt website which lists all approved iv therapy courses. www.bvnpt.ca.gov/education/schools/iv_providers.shtml
I'm sure that other states have this information available to them on their websites as well. If it doesn't, you should be able to call your state licensing board ( you may have to be on hold for a long time) to find your answers.

Thanks for all the responses!! I did in fact take the IV & Blood Withdrawal Cert. course at Genesis Medical. It was a great course!! The instructor was fantastic!! She was very knowledgeable and kept the class lively. I like the course so much I've gone back and taken a few other courses (EKG, ACLS & PALS). All were fantastic. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

To anyone who is out of CA, looking for IV or other CE courses, I'd recommend that you check with the board in your state. They should have a list for you of certified providers.

Thanks again to everyone for your responses. The advice was very helpful!!
