Once a candidate has met the pre-hiring requirements, the agency schedules the nurse for essential training prior to servicing any patient.
The agency training program incorporates both a clinical and didactic component.
The clinical component requires the nurse to successfully start a peripheral IV and participate in the start-of-care procedures. The nurse must demonstrate competency in the specific treatment modality with appropriate patient interaction.

This portion of training consists of a series of lectures on the IgG molecular structure, infusion objective, characteristics, infusion cycle dosing, side effects, gravity feed and electronic pump applications.
Every new nurse is oriented and in-serviced at the agency facility and, is instructed on patient documentation requirements governed by the department of health (DOH) and specific agency documentation for patient charting and reimbursement.
Included in the orientation are important elements addressing HIPAA, patient rights, confidentiality, advanced directives, universal precautions among other factors within agency patient service objectives.
