“IV Mastery was born out of my two passions: education and IVs. I put the two together to provide learning solutions to the healthcare community.”
– Hugues Villeneuve RN, Founder and Chief Executive Officer

Founder and Chief Executive Officer
Hugues started his career in healthcare as a registered nurse and has been a highly respected vascular access specialist for over 30 years. He has trained hundreds of other vascular access specialists on how to insert peripheral lines, midlines, and PICCs using 3CG technology.
During his early days as a nurse educator, he often heard the same question: “Isn’t there a better way to train our nurses?” His answer, unfortunately, was always “no.” His client’s needs inspired him to come up with a better solution. That’s when Hugues decided to create an online training platform that is intuitive, convenient, user-friendly, and affordable.
Over the past six years, Hugues has worked diligently to create the IV Mastery program so that healthcare facilities and workers could easily access the comprehensive teaching tools online.
Making IV education more convenient and affordable for every healthcare professional continues to be Hugues’ ultimate goal. IV Mastery is a platform that healthcare professionals can use anytime so nurses can reach the highest standards in IV practice without breaking the bank.
“Financial constraints should never influence the ability of healthcare workers to learn and expand their knowledge and skills.” ~ Hugues Villeneuve
With over 13 courses in intravenous management and more than 30 contact hours available, IV Mastery provides the training and tools to assist the healthcare professional community. IV Mastery solves a logistic nightmare while providing learning solutions to RNs, LPNs, and LVNs.
Hugues believes it’s time for skilled nursing facilities to jump into the 21 century and use technology to make education more accessible.
Nathalie Villeneuve loves to weave self-expression, art, and design into her message to help women cultivate their creativity. She defines herself as a free-spirited woman blessed with a loving family. Nathalie’s background is in Fine Art and Graphic Design. She was in business for seven years, facilitating painting workshops where she helped women create art while raising their self-esteem.
Nathalie’s award-winning work speaks volumes and has been shown in various galleries, and recently as a greeting card line and a coloring book.
As it did for so many, the pandemic caused a shift in the Villeneuve household, and Nathalie was forced to close up shop.
While Hugues was putting the final touches on the launch of IV Mastery in August 2020, there was such excitement in the air. It was then that Hugues and Nathalie started to talk about making IV Mastery a true family-owned and operated business.
Nathalie joined IV Mastery as Marketing Director to increase brand awareness and to introduce the healthcare industry to a new IV education standard. Her goal is to optimize client experience for long-term care pharmacies and skilled nursing facilities.
Her years of experience with social media marketing, graphic design, and community-building align with IV Mastery’s goals to grow long-term care pharmacy partnerships and make IV education accessible to our nation’s nurses.

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act but a habit.” — Aristotle
“I like this quote because, at IV Mastery, we strive to bring the best out of nurses who take our IV certification classes. This quote is a reminder of that goal. RNs should take time daily to remember what made them choose this great profession. When we become nurses, we pledge to provide care to those who need it; we also commit to pursuing our education to become better nurses.
I recommend every nurse become IV certified whether or not they wish to specialize as an infusion nurse. Never stop working on yourself. Become the best nurse you can be!”
