WTA Program FAQs
Recognizing the increasing demand for skilled wound care in all care settings including the military, the WOCN Society has developed an educational program designed to increase patient access to skilled wound care providers.
The WTA Program is a WOCN Society-endorsed wound care educational program geared toward non-specialty licensed wound care providers and medics/corpsmen. After completing the program, participants will receive a certificate and will be prepared to function as an integral and valuable member of the wound care team.
