Infection Preventionist

This is the operational level for the Infection Control Practitioner job series. Incumbents in this classification perform journey-level work in implementing healthcare-associated infection reduction strategies for patient and personnel through assessment and risk identification. Practitioners at this level utilize greater discretion and work more independently than those at the Associate Infection Preventionist level, but are not considered seniors and do not typically provide lead direction to other staff. Incumbents report directly to the Manager of the Infection Prevention Program, and may also obtain lead direction from the Senior Infection Preventionist.

Minimum Education and Skills Required for Consideration:

  • BSN (Bachelors in Nursing) or commensurate degree in a Healthcare-related field. Experience may substitute for minimum education requirements.
  • Two or more years recent experience infection prevention and control experience in an acute care facility.
