    I am a student nurse and I am interested in wound care as well but I don't know where to start!

    Check out www.WECI.net for information. They have classes and one day seminars all over. They certify LVN's and RN's without BSN. there is a criteria of 2 years experience or hiring a preceptor. If you have your BSN then you can get your WOCN. Im planning on the WCC certification through Wound Care institute / weci.net. I will complete my BSN next year then go for the WOCN. Good luck.

    If you have your BSN I strongly recommend obtaining your WOCN certification. There are several distance learning programs. It's pretty pricey and you have many hours of clinical but it's one of the best things I've ever done. I highly recommend Emory! If you go to a job search engine you will find many facilities prefer the WOCN certification.
