Project Firstline provides innovative and accessible infection control education for all frontline healthcare workers – so they can protect their patients, their coworkers and themselves from infectious disease threats in health care.

As a collaborative, Project Firstline brings together more than 75 healthcare, academic, and public health partners to reach a wide range of healthcare audiences and settings across the country.

Project Firstline offers educational resources in a variety of formats to meet the diverse learning needs and preferences of the healthcare workforce. Resources are designed using adult learning principles, educational best practices, CDC recommendations, and the science that informs them.

Nurses are the nation’s first line of defense against infectious diseases such as COVID-19. That’s why NAINA has partnered with American nurses association (ANA) and center for Disease Control ( CDC) to present Project Firstline, an interactive series of free online tools that give NAINA members the training and information  they need to know  about infection prevention and control (IPC). Comprehensive education includes best practices addressing COVID-19 and other pathogens, as well as evidence-based strategies to improve outcomes.

Project Firstline resources are designed to help NAINA nurses to understand and confidently apply IPC principles regardless of previous training or background. New courses will be added as information advances so you can stay prepared with the latest knowledge. Together, we can stop the spread.
