Local Chapter IV Nurse Day Celebrations
IV Nurse Day is a great day for the infusion community, and our local chapters always know how to celebrate! Come back frequently and see what some local chapters are doing to celebrate and get involved!
The Empire State Infusion Nurses Association
ESINA, in conjunction with Infusion Option Inc., will be honoring our nurses this year with an all-day celebration. We will be hosting breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the nurses; we want to accommodate their varying work schedules. Tokens of our appreciation will be given out, and raffles of INS IV products will be held at each meal to encourage awareness of INS and certification achievement.
