Nursing Infection Control Education Network
INS is pleased to be 1 of the 20 nursing specialty organizations partnering with the American Nurses Association (ANA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to develop the Nursing Infection Control Education Network (NICE Network). The NICE Network strives to empower nurses to protect themselves and their patients by providing real-time infection prevention and control training to U.S. nurses. The goal of the training programs developed through the NICE Network is to improve adherence to infection prevention and control practices and enhance the confidence of nurses to care for patients with Ebola and other highly contagious diseases.
The purpose of the Enhancing Education and Training on Infection Control for U.S. Nurses project is to:
- provide real-time, tailored infection control training to nurses,
- improve adherence to infection prevention and control practices known to be effective in preventing exposure to Ebola virus disease and other emerging infectious diseases; and
- enhance the confidence of nurses to care for patients with Ebola virus disease or other highly contagious diseases through effective education and training.
INS is in the process of developing programs in conjunction with the ANA and CDC, that meet the goals of this program. We will be posting information on this page as the programs are finalized. The programs will include:
- Infection Control Sessions at INS 2018
- Website Promotion of other partner programs
- We will also be posting information about programs from other organizations
Please come back to visit this page over the next few months to keep apprised of the status of our programming.
INS would like to thank the ANA and CDC for including us in this important educational project.
