Peripheral Intravenous Catheter Insertion Competence and Confidence in Medical/Surgical Nurses
Objective: Implement an evidence-based practice project to improve peripheral IV confidence and competence, as well as first attempt success. Methods: Utilizing a blended online learning module and live simulation to increases peripheral IV insertion confidence and competence.1,2 Internal application of a blended curriculum model improved nurses first attempt IV insertion success. A validated confidence assessment was completed by participants (n=38) pre intervention, immediately post intervention and 30 days post intervention. Results: A Mann-Whitney U test determined that nurses’ confidence was significantly higher immediately following the intervention compared to pre intervention (p=0.003) and the increase was sustained 30 days after the intervention (pp=0.00004).
