About NHSN Training
- What does the training consist of?
- How many people at my hospital can participate in the NHSN Net Conference Training?
- Are the training sessions archived so I can access them again at a later date?
- Can we download a copy of these training instructions?
Currently, the training consists of pre-recorded webcast including archived Net Conference training sessions, as well as accompanying slidesets, as a method to ensure proper training of all NHSN users. Training requirements differ depending on the role of the NHSN user. These training requirements are available at Required Training
You may have as many individuals participate in the training as you would like. We recommend that all persons who are likely to enter patient safety or healthcare personnel safety information into NHSN be included. For certain sessions, you may also find it advantageous to include Information Technology staff and/or administrators.
The CDC has a permanent file on the NHSN website which allows you or your colleagues to "attend" any session that you missed or review any information that you may have questions about. These training sessions are available at: NHSN Training
The slide presentations from the training sessions are available at the NHSN Training
