Hello. I am in the process of applying to get wound care certification online. The program is webwocnurse.com. Is this a legitimate accredited school? It appears to be, as it is associated with a brick and mortar university, but I wanted to check with you folks first. Thanks!
I, as well as my coworker, obtained my CWON thru WebWOC. It's associated through Metropolitan State University in St Paul, Minnesota. It was about a four month program to be able to sit for both Wound and Ostomy cert. I am fortunate enough to be employed at a hospital that pays for certification so that helped tremendously with the tuition costs. I chose it over the Emory program b/c my coworker had a great experience and it was all online. I didn't have to go "away" for the practical hours which also made my employer happy. Anyhow, I think it is a great program and I felt well prepared going into my cert exams. Good luck on your decision. If you need more info on accredited WOCNCB programs, check out the WOCNCB website (if you haven't already). :0)
