A new wound care program is now available through the University of Nebraska Medical Center. UNMC’s College of Nursing, Continuing Nursing Education department (creators of Gero Nurse Prep) is proud to host the Wound Treatment Associate (WTA) program, developed by the WOCN Society using internationally-recognized leaders and educators in wound management and prevention, and augmented by our resident CWOCN expert.
The evidence based WTA program is a 12-week self-paced online program covering 14 wound care and prevention topics. Participants will have access to our Course Coordinator; an experienced and Certified Wound Ostomy Continence Nurse (CWOCN), throughout the program and during the one day, on-site group competency testing /simulation day, which provides an invaluable hands on training experience. On program completion, participants will receive 24.0 nursing contact hours and will also be prepared to take the WTA-C certification exam (not required).
The inaugural group is scheduled to start in February 2019 and space is limited. Registration closes February 1, 2019.
