Infusion Therapy Nursing
Infusion therapy nursing providers help patients receive critical medications without needing hospitalization. These nurses administer medication in homes, ambulatory care centers, nursing homes or through infusion pharmacy operations, providing support for patients of all ages.
These professionals also ensure better patient care and outcomes through ongoing monitoring and consistent follow-up visits. They need the most up-to-date standards and education to provide the care and quality patients need and expect.
That’s where CHAP comes in.
Accreditation through CHAP helps ensure infusion therapy nurses stay abreast of the knowledge and technology they need to deliver the highest quality care throughout a community.

Any organization that provides infusion nursing services directly to patients through a home health agency, ambulatory infusion center, infusion pharmacy or private duty nursing program should apply for accreditation.
