What Is the Value of CIC?

Published January 23, 2013 1:40 PM by Linda Jones
This year, the Certification Board of Infection Control & Epidemiology, Inc. (CBIC) will celebrate 30 years of providing the Certification in Infection Control (CIC) credential.

"The vision of CBIC is that certification by CBIC is the standard of excellence that Infection Prevention and Control professionals will seek to ensure quality care that the public expects, demands, and deserves," said CBIC President Craig Gilliam, BSMT, CIC.

The mission of the board, according to a release from CBIC, is to protect the public through the development, administration and promotion of an accredited certification in infection prevention and control. CBIC maintains and promotes professional certification of the highest quality through the accomplishment of key objectives.

I'm interested in knowing how many people who have the CIC have found benefit in getting this certification; or whether those without the certification count on the expertise of those who have it.
