IV classes for nurses are those classes that involve learning about Intravenous therapy or the administration of fluid substances into human veins, as noted by the Rutgers University School of Nursing. Nurses take these classes in order to be equipped to deal with blood transfusion and infusion of volume expanders.
The classes normally entail demonstrations, self-study, reviewing various issues, lab training and testing. The classes are mainly available for registered nurses. These classes help nurses understand how to check if a patient requires IV therapy and how to go about the whole process. The classes also equip nurses with knowledge on possible complications and solutions when administering IV therapy.
