Infection Prevention and Control

Enhancing Education and Training on Infection Control for Nurses

ANNA partnered with the American Nurses Association (ANA, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and other organizations to train nurses in infection prevention and control. The Nursing Infection Control Education (NICE) Network provides real-time, tailored infection control training to nurses to improve infection prevention and control practices known to be effective in preventing exposure to emerging infectious diseases.

Nurses are the front-line of defense against infections spreading in U.S. health care facilities. The increasing number of emerging diseases often forces nurses to take on roles outside of their normal duties, including roles in environmental cleaning and waste management. With the evolution of emerging threats and ongoing issues such as healthcare-associated infections, nurses need to be equipped to understand and follow infection control procedures to not only protect themselves, but also to protect their patients.
