Vascular Access Training

Vascular Access Training and education from Vascular Wellness® is superior to other training and education options, and unlike others, offers LIVE STICKS and LIVE PRECEPTING by nurse clinicians. Our training is actual training, so in addition to classroom education, we offer simulation and hands-on training as part of our classes. Furthermore, our classes are taught by Vascular Access Board Certified (VA-BC) nurse clinician specialists and experts (not just educators) who regularly place vascular access devices in patients and train or precept nurses. Participants learn from the best with clinical case studies as part of the curriculum. We bring our training to you, providing comprehensive and convenient educational opportunities. Our training and education classes will grow your skills and help you improve patient outcomes.

Vascular Access Nurse Training

Vascular Access Nurse Training classes from Vascular Wellness cover a broad range of topics, including line identification, line care and maintenance (including line patency and restoration), parenteral nutrition, and IV Insertion or Placement. Through our class offerings and instruction by nurse clinicians with actual and recent clinical experience, you will build and improve upon your clinical knowledge and skills.

Continuing training and education classes are available virtually or on-site. We bring vascular access nurse training straight to your healthcare setting and location. Our training classes are based on the latest evidence-based best practices and national guidelines and incorporate our aggregate and diverse experience gained over many years of providing vascular access services to a variety of healthcare settings. We offer vascular access training that can be delivered at your facility and customized to incorporate your specific equipment, supplies, policies, and participant skill levels.  Unlike other companies whose classes are taught by non-practicing teachers, do not travel to you, or whose classes do not include hands-on training or skills verification, our classes provide a truly comprehensive educational experience. Classes include didactic, simulation, and/or mannequin-based training in a classroom setting and can incorporate live stick precepting and/or competency, as applicable.

We provide pre and post skills testing, course certification, and the potential opportunity for obtaining Vascular Wellness competency. These practical skills translate to an immediate benefit for healthcare settings and facilities and improved outcomes for patients.

Empowering nurses through Vascular Access Nurse Training is an important component of our comprehensive training offerings.

Empowering nurses through education

Empowering Nurses through Vascular Access Nurse Training

Everyone was so amazing, very helpful, knowledgeable, super friendly! Would definitely return for more education!  ~RN

[The instructor] was excellent and thorough for the didactic portion. [The clinical instructors] were patient, encouraging, and most importantly, honest about what I needed to improve upon. Their suggestions and support gave me the guidance to do very well on that last clinical day despite missing more than a few IVs the first two days.  ~RN
