I am exploring the option of becoming an infection control nurse when I graduate from nursing school
. I am already an MT(ASCP), so I am reasonably certain that I have adequate academic preparation. However, all the job listings for infection control practitioners want someone who is CIC certified, and in order to be eligible to sit for the certification exam you need experience. So, you see my problem.
Do you think that anyone would hire me straight out of school without certification and be willing to give me the experience I need for my exam?
Any thoughts would be appreciated- thanks in advance for your help.
