Bring the WTA Program to Your Facility
Increase Wound Care Outcomes
Benefits of the WTA Program
The WTA Program prepares non-specialty nurses to provide optimal wound care and act as WOC nurse extenders to assist in the following:
  • Eliminating avoidable pressure injuries
  • Preventing wound complications
  • Promoting optimal patient outcomes
  • Providing education to patients, caregivers and team members
Having a WTA graduate act as a WOC nurse extender gives the WOC nurse more time to treat patients with complex issues and to manage skin and wound care on a facility/agency-wide level.

The program's flexibility also saves facilities money: participants need less time off work, and unlike an offsite wound course, there are no travel costs associated with the program.

Role of the WOC Nurse
Within the WTA Program, the WOC nurse acts as a "Course Coordinator" to teach evidence-based practices and share his or her high-level clinical experience with program participants.

Being a Course Coordinator further expands the WOC nurse leadership role and enhances the value of the specialty practice. Directing WTA participants increases the recognition of the WOC nurse as the leading expert in wound care with the skills to direct facility-wide skin and wound care practices.
