Episode 26 The Premier Program for Basic Wound Care Education


On this episode on WOCTalk we sit down with Janet Ramundo, MSN, RN, CWOCN, CFCN to talk about the Wound Treatment Associate (WTA®) Program. Janet has been a practicing CWOCN since 1991, in both home health and long-term care settings, and an educator at Emory University’s WOCNEP since 1996. As an active WTA Program Course Coordinator, Janet has graduated over 100 students through the program. She currently serves as the Wound Treatment Associate Advisory Committee Chair for the WOCN® Society.

The WTA Program is a continuing education program created by the WOCN Society to further empower wound, ostomy and continence (WOC) specialty nurses, and improve patient outcomes by strengthening the wound care team. As the premier program offering basic wound care education, the WOCN Society strives to ensure that all program materials remain accurate, relevant, and current. Listen in to learn more about the program, how to bring the program to your institution and the exciting changes that are rolling out as of October 1, 2019–including additional clinical skill competencies and an increase in nursing continuing education contact hours and continuing competency units for physical therapists.
