Give your nursing or healthcare career a boost with a certificate that will amplify and hone your skills in one of the most critical medical issues our lifetimes: infection control. Complete the Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) certificate program at American Sentinel College of Nursing & Health Sciences at Post University.

This certificate will enhance your medical career by giving you the tools you need to help prevent, manage, and control outbreaks and the spread of infectious diseases in health settings. Plus, coursework for the infection control certificate is designed to help qualifying students to sit for the Certification in Infection Control (CIC®) initial certification exam.

The Certificate in Infection Control prepares students for the Certification in Infection Control (CIC) credential examination. Post University does not guarantee certification. Professional credentials include requirements outside of education, which may include exams, background checks, work experience, and more. It is ultimately the responsibility of individual students to be in charge of their own certification process and to make sure that all requirements are met in obtaining certification. Post University does not speak on behalf of any licensing board or body. The Certification Board of Infection Control and Epidemiology issues the CIC. The full requirements for the CIC can be found here:
