Happy IV Nurse Day – January 25

Yes….there is an “IV Nurse Day” and I’m not making this up. 🙂

In October 1980, the professional practice of infusion nursing was formally recognized when the United States House of Representatives declared January 25 as IV Nurse Day. Courtesy of the Infusion Nurses Society, click here to view the proclamation.The first IV Nurse Day celebration was January 1981, 30 years ago…

IV nurses aka infusion nurses have played a key role in patient safety, in reducing catheter related blood stream infections, and  contributing to good patient outcomes.  As we celebrate this day, I want to wish each infusion nurse… Happy IV Nurse Day. Whatever you do and wherever you are, on this special day, take the time to celebrate the numerous accomplishments that make us proud to be infusion nurses.
