Vascular Access Certification Exam

November 4, 2010         

The first Vascular Access Certification examination session will be December 1st through December 31st, 2010, offered by the Vascular Access Certification Corporation, the credentialing arm of AVA. More information about this testing and it's merits and ramifications is available at the AVA website, www.avainfo.org. Local study groups are forming for November; if you are taking the test and are interested in joining a group, please contact us at ivan@ivaccess.net.

Even though we are an AVA network, we advocate education through all qualified vascular access organizations, so we want you to know that INS (Infusion Nurses Society)is having its' One Day Program and Fall National Academy in Metro Washington, DC, from November 19-21, good for 30 CRNI recert units (for the entire program). For more info, you can check out their website, www.ins1.org .

The IVAN board is working on plans for future meetings, tentatively for February 12 (a Member's Appreciation Dinner and Presentation), April 9th or 16th, and Annual Meeting June 1, 2011. There will be more concrete information about locations, speakers, times, etc. in the next few weeks.

For the many of you still waiting for your membership cards, I have had to "remake" them, as the template for the originals ended up in cyberspace when my (April's) computer crashed, along with a lot of other stuff. I haven't forgotten, and I promise you will have them before December.
