Best Wound Care Certification Course

What is the Wound Treatment Associate (WTA®) Program? It is developed by the WOCN® Society as a continuing education program to further empower the wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) specialty nurses, and improve patient outcomes by strengthening the wound care team with a flexible education program that is applicable to all health care settings. The WTA Program prepares a non-WOC certified nurse to provide optimal care for patients with acute and chronic wounds under the direction of a WOC specialty nurse, WOC advanced practice registered nurse (APRN), or physician. The WTA Program is a continuing education activity that offers 32.25 contact hours to nurses and 21.0 CCUs to physical therapists & pta’s upon completion.

Why should you choose the WTA Program? We’ll give you these reasons as provided by the WOCN® Society.

  1. The Wound Treatment Associate (WTA) Program was developed and presented by internationally-recognized leaders and educators in wound management and prevention practices.
  2. Unlike other wound education courses, the WTA Program requires comprehensive hands-on training and testing.
