Also from SA   In agreement with the last reply   There are only LIMITED Graduate EN Programs available in SA metro areas.   All our ENs who have completed a Diploma are expected to be able to administer IV Therapy and most medications excluding IV medications

The IV Medication modul;e is an elective within the Advanced Diploma and is varied between hospitals and organisations. We have 3 levels of EN in SA: Certificate (limited medication administration), Diploma (medication administration and IV Management but NOT IV administration) and Advanced Diploma (may NOT have completed the IV medication module)
