All of our vascular access device insertions are performed using ultrasound guidance, to ensure success and accuracy on the first attempt. With an average PICC procedure time of less than 30 minutes, and the standardized use of 3CG technology, we provide the most efficient route to vascular access insertions in the region.

We launched our VA+ Education and Training center in March of 2018. As a part of our mission to continue to design, implement and diffuse innovative patient care, we knew it was time go beyond vascular access device insertions. So much of what we do is built upon the specialized education and skill set that comes from years of vascular access experience. As dedicated vascular access and insertion specialists, one of our main goals is to educate staff, patients, and healthcare administrators about the best practices for device selection and insertion, as well as safe care and maintenance.

As such, Vascular Access Plus now offers education to nurses in and around the Omaha metro at all of our contracted facilities, as well as in our own classroom and beyond. We have been approved by the State of Nebraska to provide mandatory LPN IV therapy course, which is now required for license renewal by 2021. We also offer a 2 CEU course for RN’s Best Practice: Central Line Care and Maintenance, available for facility inservices or by individual enrollment.

As we journey into a new world, characterized by pandemic response and adaptation to new distance learning platforms, we are building out our standard courses into an online format, and developing specialised online education for IV infusion therapy and biologic medication administration. We look forward to helping RNs and LPNs across the region access online CEUs and education as we all move forward in a COVID affected world.
