On January 25, we recognize the hard work and dedication of our infusion nurses. We appreciate the skill and compassion they use to care for our patients. Their services enable patients to get the life-saving treatments they need without having to travel far to get them. Thank you for all you do to keep our patients healthy, safe, and comfortable.
Infusion nurses administer medications and fluids through an intravenous (IV) line, central line, or venous access port. Every January 25, infusion nurses and other healthcare professionals observe National IV Nurse Day. Established in 1980, the U.S. House of Representatives designated this day to honor and recognize the accomplishments of the nation's infusion nurse specialists each year, as well as the Infusion Nurses Society.
