INS Fundamentals of Infusion Therapy
INS is proud to announce our newest endeavor, the Fundamentals of Infusion Therapy (FIT) program. FIT is a web-based, interactive educational tool developed in alignment with INS’ Infusion Therapy Standards of Practice. The FIT program consists of 8 modules with full motion graphics, videos, simulations, references, and critical thinking exercises that engage learners, while incorporating considerations for various health care settings and patient populations. This program is suited for nurses who are new to nursing practice, as well as experienced nurses wishing to advance their knowledge of infusion therapy best practices.
Join Marlene Steinheiser and Dawn Berndt as they discuss the impetus, content, learner impact, applicability and availability of the INS FIT program.
