We <3 you. And you’ll <3 these upcoming courses.
Our Skin, Wound, and Ostomy Course is basically like a giving a present to yourself. It’s two days of expert insights, state-of-the-art updates, and best practices on how to provide a cutting-edge level of wound care you won’t find anywhere else. And whether you can join us for one of our live courses, in cities across the US, or whether studying online is a better fit for you, we’ve got you covered.
Who should take this course? Is it just for nurses?
While our SWOC course is designed to help nurses achieve a wound care certification (and, by the way, our pass rate is 95%), it’s also a phenomenal opportunity for anyone involved in long-term care to learn about wound care. That means owners, physicians, senior management, and nursing staff have the opportunity to participate in increasing awareness and advancing a positive public message for skilled nursing facilities. We want you!
What if I don’t have a lot of experience in wound care?
No problem! There is no requirement for a certain number of hours of wound care or treatment experience to join the course. It’s a great option especially for nurses working at hospitals, wound clinics, skilled nursing facilities, hospices, and home health agencies. Whether you’re brand new to wound care or you’ve been in the field for years, you’re sure to learn something important.
What a great course! I found the topics both relative to every day practice and presented so they are easily understood. I have worked with wounds for 2 years only and this is my first formal training. I learned so much! I can't wait to go back to work and apply what I have learned here. Thank you so much for providing such a great course!

The course focuses on increasing skin/wound/ostomy understanding in biology, assessment, prevention, risk identification, management/treatment choice, and documentation to comply with state, federal, and risk documentation. The goal is to improve health care delivery for patients and improve outcomes overall. Licensed nurses may register for the course or separately take the examination for certification. The cost of the course is all inclusive of books, fees, examination, and course lectures.
Okay, I’m in - where and when can I sign up?
We have a full calendar of live courses, taught by our wound care experts, throughout the year: each three-day course includes two full days of teaching with a review and exam on the third day. Ready to sign up? Register here!

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.
