Amy A. Lutteur, CBSN, RN, VA-BC, CRNI, owns and teaches for Home Infusion Nurse®, an educational company that teaches nurses how to perform PICC/Port and PIV care and how to manage infusions. Additionally, she is an active member of a Level 1 trauma center vascular access team. She is board certified in vascular access, as well as in infusion nursing.
Amy has worked extensively with “difficult vein” populations such as those with vascular disease, diabetes, IV drug use disorder and renal disease. Additionally, she was the go-to IV nurse while working in a long-term acute care hospital with patients whose only viable veins were in ankles, feet, knees and shoulders. She has successfully obtained IV access during seizure activity and during chest compressions! From a small community hospital to a level 1 trauma center with a dialysis center and cardiac care between, Amy has witnessed and heard about a myriad of IV complications. She continues to be amazed at how many nurses have not been offered the education they need and deserve for this invasive and high-risk skill.
Amy’s sense of humor will keep you engaged as she eagerly shares her time-proven tricks and tips for IV care. Whether you are a new nurse, or a nurse who has practiced for decades, this course will dramatically decrease your risk of legal action and impact your practice like no other course you have taken!
