Wound Treatment Associate (WTA) Program
The WOCN Society developed the Wound Treatment Associate (WTA®) Program as a continuing education program to further empower the wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) specialty nurses, and improve patient outcomes by strengthening the wound care team with a flexible education program that is applicable to all health care settings. The WTA Program prepares a non-WOC certified nurse to provide optimal care for patients with acute and chronic wounds under the direction of a WOC specialty nurse, WOC advanced practice registered nurse (APRN), or physician.
The WTA Program is not a certification program. It is a continuing education activity that offers 32.25 contact hours to nurses and 21.0 CCUs to physical therapists upon completion. WTA graduates are also eligible for the WTA-C certification.
