wound care certification

Posted

Hello all

I have been a nurse for a little over a year however, I have 8 years of experiance in General surgery as a MA/ surg tech. I am interested in becoming wound care certified. Does anyone have any insight as to what programs are the best and how hard the courses are?

Thanks!!

Check out WCEI.net Wound Care Educational Institute. You can earn a WCC certification after 2 yrs of experience. Good Luck!

Did the WOCNCB route and highly recommend it although it is a best pricey. Several programs offer distance learning. For each specialty you choose you will be expected to complete 40 hours of clinical time (Wound, Ostomy, Continence) and then possibly a week at the school. Check out the program available at Emory University. It's great.
