How the process works from start to finish

1.) Check with your DON/ADON or facility administrator to get approval to do your 2-4 hour insulin administration clinical. (documentation must be signed by an RN. NO EXCEPTIONS)

2.) Select class date & pay for class in full. 

3.) Receive course documents that included, but NOT limited to course manual and contract for clinical site. If you did not receive the email please email:

3.) Print off course manual and clinical contract

4.) Complete the facility information on the front of the clinical contract then, give it to the facility  DON/ADON or administrator to sign the back of the contract

5.) Return the completed signed contract back to us via email at: We have to submit the contract for clinical approval to the state department of health. You can NOT begin clinical until the state department of health clears your facility and sends us approval. this process can take up to two weeks, so please return the contract ASAP.

6.) Begin reviewing the study materials received and be prepared to ask questions about topics you don't understand. I recommend watching you-tube videos on insulin administration to familiarize yourself with the content before coming to class as this will aide in your success of not only this class but the state exam as well. 

7.) Come to class on your scheduled date/time. You must be ON-TIME. There is not grace period. If you arrive late, you will be asked to reschedule for an additional fee of $50.00 or you will forfeit your entire class payment. You must bring the course manual with you to class or you will have to pay $25.00 for one to be provided to you. Course manuals are required NOT optional. 

Please note traffic is heavy is this area so leave at least 20 minutes earlier than the expected drive time. 

The next steps (8-15) will be explained more in detail during class, need to be reviewed for your understanding.

8.) In class, we will review the main  course topics, you will do two skills check-offs, and take an exam. You must get an 80% on the exam to pass the class or you will have to come back and re-take it. You get one free re-take. All exam re-takes after the first one are $50.00 per test. This is NOT the state exam. 

9.) After successfully completing the class (all parts of #8) AND receiving approval from us that your clinical site has been approved, you may do your 2-4 hour insulin administration clinical. 

10.) When you have completed steps 8 & 9 you need to review ALL of your course documents taht were provided to you in class and make sure everything is filled out in its entirety and accurately and legibly.
