Vascular Access Nurse Education

Vascular Access Nurse Education is available from and provided by our practicing Vascular Access nurse clinicians. Our Education includes training and through our course offerings, you will build your knowledge and clinical skills. Continuing education classes are available live, either virtually or on-site. We bring training straight to the client – to the specific healthcare setting and location.  We customize our training to the participant’s skill level, and a client’s equipment, supplies, and policies.

Vascular Access Nurse Education includes a variety of content, including classroom, simulation, and hands-on opportunities. Our education also consists of skills verification by a preceptor to validate compliance with our competencies. Unlike other companies that provide education courses only in a classroom setting, that require you to travel to them, or whose courses are taught by trainers and not practicing nurse clinicians, our courses provide participants with the comprehensive and convenient training they need to be successful.

Empowering nurses through our unique education and training program is a significant component of our vision of Advancing Healthcare.

VASCULAR ACCESS EXPERTS

As Vascular Access Experts, Vascular Wellness nurse clinicians are Vascular Access Board Certified (VA-BC), insured, skill-verified, and salaried W2 employees.  Vascular Wellness requires bi-annual skill verification ensuring adherence to proprietary policies, procedures, competencies, and best practices.  We focus on holistic and comprehensive care and do not follow the pay per procedure model plus performance bonuses used by others that may create some adverse incentives for speed at the bedside versus holistic medical care helping to ensure the placement of the right line at the right time, the first time.  In fact, Vascular Wellness employs a Director of Research and Development who not only helps us stay up to date on best practices but helps us continue to innovate and improve upon Vascular Access Services.

Vascular Access Specialists from Vascular Wellness

Vascular Access Experts practice holistic medical care, meaning talking to the patient, addressing questions and fears, and performing a comprehensive medical review.  Prior to delivering any Vascular Access procedure, the Vascular Wellness clinician reviews the patient’s medical record, including history and lab reports, and independently verifies and confirms the doctor’s order.  If our clinician has questions or disagrees with the prescribing doctor, the clinician will consult with the doctor. Our Vascular Access Experts have earned the trust of many doctors, and such doctors will defer to the clinician’s recommendation by ordering a “consult” as compared to a specific line.  Patient safety and vein preservation are critical – which is why a holistic, comprehensive evaluation and Advanced Lines are significant.  Other companies claiming to be Vascular Access Experts may not follow this same approach frustrating medical doctors and nurses primarily because those 1099 Contractor PICC nurses do not place Advanced Lines (i.e, no options other than PIVs, Midlines, and PICCs) and get paid on a pay per procedure model.

In states where nurses are permitted, as Vascular Access Experts, Vascular Wellness clinicians can provide immediate X-Ray Clearance of lines when tip confirmation is not available or appropriate and X-Ray confirmation must be used. This saves money, time, and coordination with a Radiologist or other doctor and enables the lines to be used immediately to avoid delaying treatment. Quicker therapy leads to better outcomes.
