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.
  3. The WTA Program is an evidence-based continuing education course that meets international standards of care and prepares participants for the WTA-C credentials.
  4. WTA certification examination is offered through the WOCNCB®, a certification body nationally recognized by the ABSNC and the NCCA.
  5. The WOCN® Society is an accredited provider of CNEs through the ANCC.

Graduates of the WTA Program are then eligible for WTA certification examination and upon passing the wound treatment associate examination, individuals will receive their WTA-C® credential. The WTA-C credential is valid for five years.
