What is Specialty Infusion Nursing?

Specialty Infusion nursing is a specialized nursing field focused on the care of patients receiving high-touch intravenous (IV) biological therapy. Specialty Infusion nursing   encompasses the disease state, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment of orphan and ultra-orphan disorders (rare diseases that affect less than 200,000 people.) Specialty Infusion nurses are a critical part of a specialty patient’s care team and provide education and administration of infusions of biologicals to patients in the comfort of their own home

How to Become an SPNN Specialty Infusion Nurse?

SPNN is actively recruiting highly experienced infusion nurses nationwide. We specifically seek out best-in-class CRNI®, IgCN®, and OCN® accredited nurses. 

From INS:

A certified registered nurse infusion (CRNI®) is an exceptional nurse who has passed a rigorous exam covering the core areas of infusion nursing. CRNI®s stay ahead by being exposed to the newest advances in technology and practice within the infusion nursing specialty. 

Becoming a CRNI® exemplifies a commitment to excellence. This prestigious credential warrants the recognition and respect of patients, peers, and employers because it’s proof of dedication to the pursuit of lifelong learning and the delivery of quality health care. 

CRNI®s are part of a global community of elite nurses across multiple disciplines—including home care, pediatrics, oncology, and many more—who’ve demonstrated through certification that they are the most informed, most highly qualified infusion nursing specialists. A CRNI® is, first and foremost, an advocate for improving patient care.

From Cison:

The goals of the IgNS certification and the Immunoglobulin Certified Nurse (IgCN®) Credential are to protect the public by assessment, validation, and documentation of the knowledge, skills, and overall clinical competence of nurses managing and administering Ig (Immunoglobulin) therapy. IgCN Credentialing is designed to certify qualified nurses after an assessment of their knowledge, skills, and competence in Ig nursing. IgCN is the first professional credential specific to the Ig nursing specialty practice. “The IgCN Credential empowers nurses to be confident clinical decision-makers,” said Amy Clarke, RN, the chair of the IgNS Certification Board.

From ONCC:

The Oncology Certified Nurse (OCN®) credential means a nurse has the knowledge to competently care for adults with cancer. Nurses who are certified as OCN®s have wide knowledge of the many issues involved in providing care for patients with cancer. Most nurses who are certified in oncology are certified as OCN®.

If you’re an expert infusion nurse committed to excellent patient care, strict environmental safety protocols, second-to-none circle of care communication, and ongoing education, we encourage you to apply and look forward to hearing from you.
