IV Nurse Day
It's Your Day!
Every year on January 25, thousands of infusion professionals around the country celebrate IV Nurse Day. First celebrated in 1981, it is a day that means a great deal to the many who have dedicated their lives to providing the best infusion care possible.
INS Past President Cheryl Gardner addressed the official announcement of this historic day in the January/February 1981 issue of the then–NITA Journal. A framed copy of the Congressional Record recognizing INS (then NITA) and IV Nurse Day was presented to Cheryl by the Honorable Edward J. Markey, current U.S. Senator from Massachusetts. That proclamation still hangs in the INS office as a reminder of this incredible day honoring the hardworking individuals who dedicate their lives to the infusion specialty.
Today, many of our members, their employers, and local chapters celebrate this special day with friends, family, and colleagues.
