Comparing Online Learning and Classroom Learning

Wound care education institute – classroom learning

If you have decided that it’s time to increase your wound care knowledge, you have many options available to you. What it boils down to is identifying what type of learning will best suit your needs. You essentially have two choices: online learning and classroom learning. Let’s take a look at both of these options.

Classroom learning (i.e. The Wound Care Education Institute)

Some students prefer to learn “in person”. If you are an in-person learner, you prefer to seek out an ideal learning environment. You prefer your learning environment to be separate from your home or leisure environment. You prefer to interact with other learners face-to face and enjoy meeting new people. You enjoy being able to ask questions of an instructor and have your question answered immediately. In short, you prefer a hands-on approach to learning. If this describes you, you might prefer learning about wound care management through a program such as the one offered by the Wound Care Education Institute, which offers training programs at multiple locations in the US.

Some students are eager to learn and do not necessarily want to wait to learn. If you are more suited to online learning, you will relish the fact that you can begin your learning experience whenever you are ready. You can learn at your own pace without having to worry about keeping pace with others in a classroom environment. Online learners are motivated to learn and have strong self-discipline. They enjoy interacting with other in an online environment and are comfortable with different forms of online media. Online learners often learn while working at a 9 to 5 job and appreciate the convenience of learning in the comfort of their own home. Online learners are also rewarded by the lesser costs associated with online learning, which may be considerable.

There is no right way to learn. Everyone learns differently, and the trick is to choose a style of learning that will best meet your needs. If you feel that a classroom environment will best suit your needs, the Wound Care Education Institute is one example of a seminar-type education program that will prepare you for wound care certification. If you feel that you are up to the challenge of online learning and would prefer to learn at your own pace at home, WoundEducators offers competitively priced online wound care certification courses for practitioners of all levels to prepare for wound care certification. Whatever your learning style, there is a program to meet your wound care education needs.


  1. I would like to know if this course Wound educators on line , is valid in Washington state to take the certification exam . I am a certified rehab and Med surg nurse. Thank you, Sara Wickline

    1. Hi Sara, All of our courses are approved by New Jersey State Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission On Accreditation. The NJSNA is an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. Our course approvals are accepted in all States. For detailed information view the RN wound care certification course.

      1. Further to this, is this course accepted in Canada? I know that all knowledge is good, therefore what is learned is valid but are the credentials earned approved here in Canada? I have contemplated taking my Masters in Clinical Sciences at Western University in Ontario as it is online learning (mostly). Would this be an acceptable alternative for wound care learning?

        1. Canadian clinicians are the second largest group of our students. Those that successfully completed our wound care certification course will have a thorough knowledge in advanced wound management and will be prepared for the various wound certification exams. For more information on the CWCN certified wound care nurse certification offered by the WOCN board view the WOCNCB eligibility requirements (our course will prepare you via the experiential pathway).

  2. Is this course available in Australia. and would it be recognized
    As a registered nurse 2 in Australia I am very interested in the course but a bit doubtful as it is conducted in America.
    thanks Judi.

    1. The WoundEducators.com RN wound care certification course is online and can be taken wherever internet access is available. Once you successfully complete the course, you will be one of many Australian’s that have completed a 50 hour course in advanced wound management. Provided you have sufficient clinical experience, you may also be eligible to sit for the certified wound care nurse (CWCN) examination offered by the Wound Ostomy Continence Nursing Board (WOCNC) in Australia. For more information about the WOCNCB examinations visit the WOCN board.

  3. Hi I would like to know where and when the upcoming classes would be located and what the price of the course would be for a RN not sure if this is the way to go for me or online yet thanks

  4. I am a graduate of Bachelor of Science in Nursing in the Philippines, Registered Nurse in the Philippines and Saudi Arabia, and currently working as a Wound Care Nurse for 3 1/2 years now in KSA. To what Wound Care Certification category do I qualify and to whom should I send my credentials for evaluation?

    1. Hi Leonora, Thank you for your interest in our program. I recommend that you take the BSN wound care certification course.
      You can certainly take our courses from a country outside of the US. When you complete the course, you will receive a certificate of completion showing completion of 50-60 hours in wound care management.
      The wound certification examination is provided by an independent certifying body and only has testing in the US. You would need 3 years of wound related experience to eligible for “certification” and would need to come to the states to take the certification exam. Most of our international students take the wound care course and obtain a “ Certificate of Completion”. The education that you will receive is invaluable. We have many students from countries around the world. We recently enrolled students from PAHANG, India and Abudhabi AE.

      We will ship your books to your location free of charge.
