3+3+2 IVT Accomplished Forms

Posted by Noel RN

The Association of Nursing Service Administrators of the Philippines (ANSAP) has revised the IV Therapy Accomplished Forms.

In ANSAP's 8th edition of the Nursing Standards on Intravenous Practice, the case completion requirements for IV Therapy was revised from the 6+6+2 to 3+3+2. This means that a Registered Nurse needs to complete 3 cases of initiating/maintaining peripheral IV infusions; 3 cases of administering IV drugs; and 2 cases of administering and maintaining blood and blood components in order to obtain a license in IV Therapy.

The prescribed IVT Accomplished Requirements format by ANSAP or the respective ANSAP-accredited hospital is the form where the 3+3+2 cases should be written. It must be duly signed by the trainers/preceptors who witnessed the completion; and the chief nurse wherein the registered nurse has undergone the completion.

IVT Hub has provided the IVT Accomplished Forms in short bond paper size (8.5" x 11") and long bond paper size (8.5" x 13") formats in PDF.
