LPN in LTC desires to be wound certified

Posted

Hello all,

I am a 5 year LTC LPN who desperately wants to be wound care certified. Where do I start on this new journey? Is the Wound Care Education Institute the best option for LPN's?

I would start with my D.O.N. at my facility, and/or your B.O.N. in the state your at. The B.O.N. should have a list of all accredited programs. As for the best option, it never hurts to get certified in a particular skill. Pick the institute that works best for you. Check and see if your facility will reimburse your cost, never hurts to ask. I'm looking to do the same in the near future........Good luck to you.
