"You know you’re good at what you do, so why invest the time, angst and money involved in pursuing specialty certification? It’s a good question, but if you understand some of the potential benefits of certification, you may find yourself signing up before you know it."
Nurses and other individuals who have specialized in Infection Prevention can become certified as well. According to the Certification Board of Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc., (CBIC)
“…. the certification exam is geared for those who have been in practice for two years, there is no longer any time requirement that defines sufficient infection control experience.”
The CBIC website has all the information you need to find out if you qualify and how to go about becoming certified in this exciting field.
