Last week was our Skin, Wound, and Ostomy certification course here in sunny Los Angeles!
It was a big success: we welcomed nurses from facilities and healthcare organizations all over Southern California, from the Valley to San Diego to Orange County. Some were getting certified for the first time, while others were there to get their certification renewed.
During the course, students learned the most up to date techniques and regulations in regards to wound care. This included how to properly classify, stage, document, and treat pressure injuries, and how to bring those best practices into facilities. Two days of learning plus an exam definitely left students feeling like experts, and eager to head back to implement what they had learned.
