I was wondering how difficult is it to go into infectious disease nursing? I have noticed that the jobs aren't plentiful per hospital, meaning only a position here or there per hospital in my area, so I'm curious as to how to make this happen. I am aware of the certifications, such as the CIC, so my first thought is to focus on gaining at least a year or 2 of clinical experience and then become certified and then maybe that would make me attractive as an ID nurse. Any thoughts? Suggestions?
All feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
