The training was participated by 60 registered nurses coming from different institutions but mostly fresh board passers. The program started at exactly 8am with a welcome address delivered by Dr. Annie P. Jacalan the IV Therapy Trainer of this institution followed by a series of lectures from 8am-5pm for two days conducted by our very own IV therapy Trainer, Doctor and Preceptors: Dr. Annie P. Jacalan, Dr. Aaron Oliveros, Barney Perez R.N., Thelma Aranas R.N., Victoria Burgos R.N., Vanessa Rae Dumagat RN, Lewella Marie Linog R.N., Ma. Frances Padolina and Frances Gay Pia R.N, MAN. The program was also enlightened with song numbers rendered by Ms. Juvy Pacle and Bernie Nueva Espana (Vocals), Agustin Villanueva (Guitar), Frances Gay Pia (Keyboard) and Jan Martin Legaspi (Violin). And to make the participants more alive and active for the very long lectures, games and line dancing was also done by the program coordinators. Demonstration of different IV procedures was performed on the afternoon of the second day of the training. The demo-lecture was performed and discussed by the following preceptors: Rubie Bayron RN, Rachel Cabillar RN, Samuel Cayetuna, Vanessa Rae Dumagat RN, Lewella Linog RN, and Frances Gay Pia RN, MAN. Pre-test and post test was given to the participants to assess their knowledge before and after the training. The most exciting part of the training is the return demonstration and actual one on one IV insertion of the participants. Mechanics and orientation was explained by the IV therapy coordinator Frances Gay Pia RN, MAN. There are five procedures that the IV participants must be able to perform and pass. After the training, the participants are required to complete their cases in order to be a certified IV Therapist. The institution will be conducting another training on February 9-11, 2013. Overall, the evaluation of the participants was OUTSTANDING.
