Job Description for Infusion Therapist (RN)

An infusion therapist (RN) is, as the name would imply, a registered nurse; however, the skill-set required of an RN infusion therapist is very specific. Chief among these nurses’ talents should be the ability to locate a vein and successfully start a line into it, and they should be able to do this almost anywhere on a patient’s body. Infusion therapists specialize in ensuring that patients get the intravenous therapies they need as prescribed by doctors. And, because of the wide variety of patients they serve, they may often need to start IVs on body parts other than the standard forearm or back of a hand.
