Infection Prevention & Control
Nursing Infection Control Education Network
ANA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have partnered with 20 NICE Network members to develop the Nursing Infection Control Education Network (NICE Network). The NICE network seeks to empower nurses to protect themselves and their patients by providing real time infection prevention and control training to U.S. nurses. The goal of the training programs developed through the NICE Network is to improve adherence to infection prevention and control practices and enhance the confidence of nurses to care for patients with Ebola and other highly contagious diseases.

- Education and training for nurses
- How to engage nursing leaders in antibiotic stewardship efforts
