For our nurse colleagues with the super I.V. skills

palpating-vein.pngYou know who I’m talking about, right? Don’t we all know a nurse who seems to hit a vein every. single. time? I think every unit has the go-to nurse when there is a “tough stick” in need of I.V. access. Actually, a few nurses come to mind when I think back to my days in the unit. Back then, we just ‘knew’ who the experts were. Maybe it was (or is) you!

Now, infusion nurses are getting the recognition they deserve. Every year on January 25th, we celebrate I.V. Nurse Day to recognize our colleagues who provide specialty care to those patients requiring the expertise of an infusion nurse. Infusion nurses have a special knowledge and skillset, and from acute care settings to home care, and among most specialties, having an infusion nurse as part of your team is important.

Happy I.V. Nurse Day!
