Duration: 3 hours

Course Summary

Although many types of wounds are easily treated, some require specialized expertise in order to resolve or treat the primary cause and to prevent additional wounds. Registered nurses and advanced RNs who opt to specialize in wound care provide an important skillset to patients suffering from chronic or acute injury, disease, or medical treatment. Most of these nurses adopt a holistic approach, coordinating efforts from the medical team to ensure that all aspects of a patient's health are considered in the treatment plan. These nurses provide both initial and ongoing wound care and serve as a resource to prepare the patient to continue care at home. As wound care is a rapidly advancing field, continuing education is necessary to ensure that nurses stay on top of the latest techniques and strategies. Nurses also have several options for certification in the field of wound care. The purpose of this course is to provide nursing professionals with knowledge of wound risk, phases of development and healing.
