Wound Care Certification and Other Nursing Specialties Benefit from Simulation Training

Wound care certification has become increasingly important with the growing focus on patient safety and outcome. The Wound, Ostomy, and Continence Nursing Certification Board (WOCNCB) reports that more than 8,100 nurses have been certified through their organization. A book on Advances in Wound Care by Lisa Corbett, APRN, CWOCN, reports that specialty certification in nursing improves patient satisfaction, nurse staffing, retention rates, and workplace empowerment.


Job Opportunities on the Rise for Nurses with Wound Care Certification

Evidence suggests that certified wound care nurses demonstrate more knowledge than non certified nurses. Wound certified nurses also stage pressure ulcers and assess lower extremity vascular status more accurately. Corbett also notes that job opportunities for certified wound nurses are increasing. As a result, nurses with wound care certification can be found in hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home care, and outpatient wound centers.
