Why Consider Taking this Certificate?
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 below 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.

What You Will Learn
In these courses you will study the current knowledge base on infection control. You will read such guidelines as the:
SHEA/APCI Guideline: Infection prevention and control in the long term care facility
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.
If you are interested in becoming the infection control leader of a health care facility, these courses are an excellent stepping stone.
Certificate and 20.00 contact hours
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.
You will save money over the cost of taking these same courses separately.
HOW DO THE COURSES WORK?
The work is divided into 4 smaller courses each of which has a set of multiple choice questions. When you achieve at least 70% correct answers you have completed that course. You can complete the courses in any sequence. When you have completed all four you receive the certificate (and 20.00 ANCC approved nursing continuing education contact hours).
