How to Find Wound Care Jobs

wound care jobs

Wound care jobs can be difficult to find, even though wound care professionals are in high demand–that is, unless you know where and how to look. There are several things you should keep in mind when you are searching for the perfect wound care job.


Because wound care has become so specialized, with an explosion of knowledge and research occurring in the past two decades, employers now expect that prospective wound care employees have the necessary education to ensure that their knowledge is up-to-date. For this reason, if you have not already done so, you might consider obtaining wound care certification.

This may seem like a daunting task, but WoundEducators offers online wound care courses that will teach you all you need to know to prepare you to write a wound care certification exam through any of the accrediting bodies.

Wound Management Experience

Of course, prospective employers will expect potential employees to have adequate experience in managing wounds. The more experience you have, the more likely you are to be hired. Education is important, but experience is equally as important. Look for opportunities to gain hands-on experience and attend learning workshops as much as you can. These can teach you many tips and tricks of the trade.

Show Your Wound Experience on Your Resume

When creating your resume, focus on highlighting your wound care education and experience. Although your background training and experience is important too, employers hiring for wound care jobs will be more interested in what you know about wound care management. Be sure you list all wound care courses and workshops you have attended, and note if you have achieved wound care certification. Also note how many years of experience you have in wound care, as well as your experience with various wound care modalities, such as debridement, hyperbaric wound therapy or ultrasound treatment of wounds.

      There are no eligibility requirements to take our course. To sit for the certification exam, you will need to show three years of clinical experience. The ABWM defines three years of clinical experience as follows: 
      “Three years of wound care experience can be acquired over the course of your career. It does not necessarily have to be a consecutive three years. Wound care does not have to be your primary responsibility during that time, as long as you can demonstrate you have had roles related to wound care throughout your career.” 

      If you do not have the required clinical experience at this time, please contact us so that we can provide you with alternative options.
