Infection Control Practice Certificate (Certificate plus 20 contact hours; $79)
Every health care provider must understand and implement an infection control program. There are no exceptions.
There are too many infectious organisms such as the multi-drug resistant-pseudomonas-aerugionosa for any health care provider today to fail to think through a necessary infection control program appropriate to that provider’s setting.
Many health care providers assign the development and implementation of an infection control program to a nurse who leads an infection control committee.
These courses will prepare you to provide the leadership and skills necessary to develop and administer an infection control program for health care providers.
This reading file is the SHEA/APIC Guideline: Infection prevention and control in the long-term care facility.
This is the current national guideline developed by the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America (SHEA) and the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology (APIC).Infection control guidelines do not exist for each health care setting. Typically guidelines are developed for hospitals or long term care facilities and interpreted as applied to other health care settings such as a physician’s practice or a stand alone ambulatory care clinic.
These four courses prepare you to provide leadership in this variety of health care settings.Career DevelopmentIf you are interested in becoming the infection control leader of a health care facility, these courses are an excellent stepping stone.
Added benefits: You will both earn both an Infection Control Practice Certificate and 20.00 ANCC contact hours that can be applied to nursing continuing education requirements.
