This article aims to provide the reader with an example of using the professional core competencies for infection control nurses, together with the self-assessment tool, to provide a framework for the development of a trainee infection control nurse using the opportunities for work-based learning that present themselves as an integral part of this clinical nurse specialist role. The development of the competencies, the educational context and the practical application of this model are described.
