Skilled Wound Care goes international!
Skilled Wound Care has now received international accreditation for its Skin, Wound, and Ostomy course exam, which means we are on the way to educating and helping nurses all over the world!
Over the five years that Skilled Wound Care (and its educational arm, the College of Long Term Care) have been offering training to nurses, more than 1300 certifications have been granted all across the country, bringing a higher standard of care to patients in skilled nursing facilities.
And now, that same certification is available and valid for nurses around the world. The exam tests competence for clinical care in skin, wound, and ostomy care, specifically for nurses in skilled nursing facilities.
“I never thought in my wildest dreams that we’d be teaching nurses throughout the world,” said the President & Founder of both Skilled Wound Care and the College of Long Term Care, Dr. Bardia Anvar. He went on to explain that he and the Skilled Wound Care team were motivated to provide the best possible wound care education to nurses, and to help them overcome the major obstacles to getting wound certified, namely prohibitive cost, and the low availability or inaccessibility of courses. “It’s just an amazing honor,” he said.
The course dates for the Skin, Wound, and Ostomy Certification Course for 2018 are as follows:
Los Angeles, CA | February 28 - March 2, 2018

Skilled Wound Care is a mobile surgical practice committed to transforming the chronic wound care model in nursing facilities. Wound care experts make weekly bedside visits to patients in long-term care facilities, avoiding transfers to hospitals or clinics. Our expert physicians give patients the most up-to-date and effective wound treatments, and educate facility staff on how to help patients continue to heal quickly and effectively between visits. This model of collaborative care allows SWC’s physicians to improve patients’ lives and health outcomes, to empower nursing staff, and to raise public awareness. Skilled Wound Care, along with its nurse and nursing home partners, is working every day to positively transform traditional nursing home wound care.
