I'm a brand new CDIS for my hospital, and despite having 26 years in the nursing profession (and a few more years as a paramedic before that) I am sitting here and feeling like I don't know much of anything. The program here at my hospital is fairly new from what I can tell, and the most experienced member of the team has been on board for about 2 years. There is not an organized 'orientation' to speak of, and I have purchased and completed the ACDIS apprenticeship via this site, which has been very valuable, but now I'm on information overload! So, hoping to network a bit with other newbies around the country, as well as CDI veterans that might want to chat and be pestered with questions from time to time! Drop me a line!!
