I have been an RN for 16 yrs and currently in home health. Im ready to learn more about wounds and skin care. Wanting to get WCC certified with WCEI, but it is very expensive $3000. Is it worth it? My company will not pay for the education even thought they will benefit from it.
What is the outlook on wound care and ostomy care in the future? is here a need for certified wound and ostomy nurses? Should I just work in a wound care clinic ? Should I wait and until I get my BSN and get CWOCN which could be $ 5-10 k. I know money is not everything, BUT has anyone had an increase in salary because of their certification?
Your thoughts on how being wound care certified has helped you?
