On the first day, they will provide you with a checklist booklet (Nursing Standards on Intravenous Practice) containing different procedures and the steps needed to implement them. MEMORIZE all these procedures by heart because on the third day or last day of your training you will have a return demonstration of all these procedures.
Be familiar with the materials that are needed in theses procedures because during the return demonstration, you are going to explain the procedure while you are practically doing every step that is written in the checklist. Example - How can you perform an IV push using the 3 way stop cock with luer-lock if you don't know the function and how that device looks?
On the day of the return demonstration, there are preceptors assigned in every procedure. Each procedure has its own demo area, so you will have the freedom to start your demo at your own choice of procedure and at your own pace. Usually, the easy ones are swarmed by the nurses lol!
Remember - don't be nervous. Start with an easy procedure, after finishing a procedure you will gain confidence and you can now move on to the other.
After the training, you still have to complete a number of case in order to have your license. Ask your proctors about the procurement of your license.
Register as early as possible!
Make sure that the hospital or training center is accredited by ANSAP

Good Luck and Congratulations to our future IV Therapists!
