Infection Control Nurse Resume Samples

An Infection Control Nurse is a specialist in recognizing, isolating, and preventing healthcare-associated infections that affect patient outcomes and also the safety of healthcare professionals. A well-drafted Infection Control Nurse Resume mentions the following core duties and tasks – recognizing and isolating infectious disease outbreaks in healthcare settings and the community at a large, investigating possible outbreaks and the marshaling of proper resources in response to the event of any confirmed outbreak, creating strategies and action plans for the prevention of outbreaks; and serving as an advocate and educator for members of the infected community.

These nurses require the same qualifications as needed for any normal nurse. However, the education requirements include a degree in nursing or an associate’s degree in nursing, and a certification from the Association for professionals in infection control and epidemiology. Work experience is as well required.
