Wound Treatment Associate Certification Program
What is the WTA Program?
The WOCN Society developed this program to meet the growing need for skilled wound care providers in all care settings, including the military, and to enhance nurses’ ability to provide optimal care for patients with acute and chronic wounds as members of a collaborative wound care team. If you are a non-WOC certified nurse or wound care provider, then the WTA Program is for you!
Purpose of the WTA Program
The purpose of the WTA Program is to prepare a non-WOC certified nurse to provide optimal care for patients with acute and chronic wounds under the direction of a WOC specialty nurse, WOC APRN, or physician.
