Infection Prevention & Control: The Next Hot Nursing Career
Never before has the field of infection prevention and control been more important. Medicare and other payers are declining to reimburse for hospital-acquired infections among inpatients. Super-bugs like MRSA are creating new challenges for hospitals and nursing homes. Increasingly, an organization’s reputation and bottom-line are being affected by its rates of hospital-acquired infections.
According to Joy Green-Hadden, Assistant Dean, Health Sciences and Nursing, the career outlook for this specialty is exceptionally bright. The role of the infection control specialist sounds pretty straight-forward: to identify, prevent, and control outbreaks of infection in health care settings and the community. However, the knowledge, skills, planning, strategies, and activities required for this specialization are exceptionally advanced and complex – and very much in demand.
