It has been my goal for some time to work in Infection Control. I am an experienced med/surg nurse with a BSN. I've been applying for Infection Control jobs but keep getting told they are looking for someone with experience. I joined APIC, but need experience in order to become certified. How did you get your foot in the door? What can I be doing to increase my chances of landing that first job? I would prefer to work in a hospital but am open to other opportunities. I just don't know where else to look and I keep running into that "experience needed" roadblock.
How do you get started in this field?
