Infection control nurse jobs are managerial positions tasked with the duty of preventing patient infections in medical facilities. In this position, nurses instruct the medical facility staff on proper sanitation procedures.

Although a large part preventing infection outbreaks has to do with medical staff complying with sanitation rules and procedures, infection control nurses must also work with patients. They examine a patient’s bacteria to identify infections, including STDs, HIV, TB, pediatric infections, scabies and nosocomial infections. When an infection is found, nurses develop sanitation plans to prevent the spread of disease. If an outbreak occurs, infection control nurses are responsible for notifying the Centers for Disease Control.

In order to qualify for infection control nurse jobs, RNs should get experience working as a staff nurse in infection control. After a few years of experience, nurses can take the Infection Control certification exam. Upon passing, RNs can begin working as certified infection control nurses.
