Exclusive access and discounted rates to a variety of educational tools, training, and resources related to infusion care
Infusion Therapy as a Specialty
Infusion therapy is one of nursing’s most complex and invasive procedures. Those who administer it require skill, commitment, as well as an extensive knowledge base. With ongoing developments in pharmacology and technology, the infusion nursing specialty is “estimated to represent between $9 billion and $11 billion a year in U.S. health care expenditures in the alternate-site market alone.” As infusion therapy practices continue to widen in scope and settings—along with the development of new infused biologic agents—so too does the role of the infusion nurse and the need for professional education and information.
INS is committed to delivering innovative resources and opportunities to a wide range of health care professionals. In a time of rapid technological advances and dramatic shifts in health care methodologies, INS is dedicated to advancing quality infusion therapy to patients by enhancing the specialty through stringent standards of practice, and promoting research and education.
INS sets the standard for infusion care, providing education to nurses and health care professionals who practice infusion therapy. Through membership, online resources, virtual learning, and educational programming, the opportunities for lifelong learning never stop. INS is the leading resource for successful infusion practice.
