If you have been researching wound care certification options, you may have stopped after being bombarded with a host of acronyms. Fear not- we’ve created a wound care certification comparison chart that can help you demystify the process of deciding between wound care certification options.
The chart is simple to navigate. Simply CLICK on one of the colored certification options to learn whether a license or specific degree is required. You can also easily determine the certifying body and which of our courses might best suit your needs if you are planning on seeking certification. Course costs are shown. If you still have questions, we have provided a link so that you can contact us in person. We are happy to discuss your options with you!
Our courses will prepare you for the wound care certification option of your choice
As can be seen from the chart, there are a variety of certifications available. Our courses are designed to provide you with options by preparing you for the wound care certification of your choice. We believe in choice- when you take one of our courses, we want you to have the option to choose between one of the many certifying bodies available. To this end, we have designed our courses so that you can make the choice that makes the best sense for you.
Whether you are an LPN, RN, physician or another healthcare professional, we want you to be able to successfully pass the certification exam of your choice that will lead to certification with the certifying body with which you most closely identify. In providing you with so many options, our goal is to help you succeed, no matter which route you choose.
At WoundEducators.com, we have no affiliation with any of the licensing bodies, thus it is not our goal to push you towards choosing one wound care certification over another. All have value, and any of them can help you get to where you want to be in your professional life. Becoming certified as a wound care specialist can help you to move upwards on your career ladder, helping you to command a higher salary or take on a new and challenging role as a wound care professional. But first, you need the necessary education to be able to pass the certification exam of your choice- and that’s where we come in.
