As the premier program offering basic wound care education, the WOCN®
Society strives to ensure that the WTA Program remains accurate, relevant, and current. Periodic reviews of the content are conducted to ensure this, and our most recent review of content has led the Society to implement some exciting new enhancements!
Effective as of today, October 1, 2019, the following changes have been made to the WTA Program:
Additional Clinical Skill Competencies
In order to appeal to a greater audience across multiple practice settings, a critical change was made to the clinical skill competencies portion of the WTA Program. Previously, all program participants had to successfully complete all four clinical skill competencies. Now, Course Coordinators will be offered
a suite of six clinical skill competencies to choose from
and tailor based on their students' specific practice settings. This exciting enhancement will ensure that these crucial WOC nurse extenders are able to learn and test skills that directly relate to their practice setting, while improving their professional practice and ultimately enhancing patient outcomes.
