Abstract

As the result of requests from several state boards of nursing, the Infusion Nurses Society (INS) convened a task force to determine whether insertion of central vascular access devices by appropriately trained registered nurses (RNs) should be recommended. The task force consisted of RNs and advanced practice registered nurses with infusion therapy experience in various practice settings. The results are presented in INS' newest position paper, adopted by the INS Board of Directors, September 2017.
